How to access and view your iCloud Keychain passwords with iOS 7
iCloud Keychain will generate and store all your iOS 7 Safari-based passwords and autofill them for you where and as needed. However, there may be times when a website doesn't allow autofill (for example, at public terminal), or you want to use a password outside Safari (for example, in another app), and then you'll need to find it, copy it, and paste it in manually. Luckily, you can do just that via the Settings apps. Here's how!
How to manually find, view, and use your iCloud Keychain passwords on iOS 7
- Launch the Settings app from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
- Now scroll down and tap on Safari.
- In the first section labeled General, tap on Passwords & AutoFill.
- On the next menu, tap on Saved Passwords.
- Enter your 4-digit passcode if you are prompted to do so.
- In this list, find the login you'd like to view the password for and tap on it.
- Here you can see the login credentials for that specific account.
That's all there is to it. Note that the list in Saved Passwords can become quite long if you save a lot of passwords. Hopefully Apple will add a search feature in a future version of iOS.
