How to find saved app passwords on iPhone

This is a step-by-step guide on how to find saved app passwords on iPhone.

You use a lot of apps, and most of them require an account in order to use them. To make your accounts safer, you should never use the same passwords for multiple websites.

But this creates a problem, you’ll end up with a ton of passwords that you could possibly remember. That’s why password managers like LastPass exist. But did you know starting with iOS 11 your iPhone can save your passwords for you? Here’s how you check up the password that iOS has saved.

How to find passwords on iPhone

Step 1. Head to your iPhone Settings app, then open the “Passwords & Accounts” section.

Step 2. Next, select “Website & App Passwords.” You’ll be asked to authenticate yourself before you can see the passwords. Enter your passcode or use Touch ID or Face ID to log in.

  1. I don’t have a “passwords & accounts” in settings, I have a “passwords” section and it looks entirely different than what you show here.

    • Hey Michael, on newer iOS version, the “Password & Accounts” option has been renamed to “Passwords”, but the steps remain the same. Let me know if you need further help.
