How to Manage Your Passwords in Safari

Like other browsers, Safari has a built-in password manager that can autofill website usernames and passwords for you. Here's how to see, edit, and add saved passwords in Safari on the Mac and in iOS.

When you log into sites or create a new login, Safari will ask you if you want to save the password (and username). It can also save your credit cards and contact information. If you have iCloud's Keychain Access set up, this saved information is also synced across your Mac and iOS devices in an encrypted file.
