You can now sync your passwords between your iPhone and Windows 10

You can now sync your passwords between your iPhone and Windows 10”

Apple has pulled version 12 of iCloud for Windows from the Microsoft Store, based on user reports.

Whether its iCloud Keychain, 1Password, DashLane, or Google Chrome itself, it's important to always use a unique random jumble of letters, numbers, and (if the website allows it) symbols as your password.

I don't have it, but I know that you'll need to check that little Passwords box in order for your browser extension to sync passwords back and forth to iCloud.

iCloud Passwords allows you to use the same strong Safari passwords you create on your Apple device, with Chrome on Windows. You can have access to all of your iCloud-stored passwords from your iPhone, MacBook, and iPad. The iCloud Passwords browser extension for Google Chrome was added to the Chrome Web Store yesterday and it is obviously free to download and install. You can use them to autofill login screens just like you would in Safari.

Make sure you checked the checkbox next to passwords and after that click on Apply button below. But while Apple will automatically fill in the account details (after a quick scan of your fingertip or face to verify your identity) when visiting a website on an iPhone or iPad ...things get a little more complicated when using non-Apple products.

Be aware that the iCloud Passwords browser extension requires to have the latest version of iCloud for Windows on your PC, and the freshly-released version 12 includes a link to install the browser extension. Other than that, working with the iCloud Passwords extension is as easy as any other password manager; you shouldn't have issues there. That includes macOS as well, though iCloud Keychain is already available there.
