How to delete saved passwords from iCloud Keychain

One of the side-effects of an easy-to-use system like iCloud Keychain is that sometimes you accidentally end up saving a password you didn't intend to. That, or you simply stop using a certain site and no longer need its password saved, or some glitch comes up and it's not working properly, and you just want to start over. Regardless of the reason, you can remove the unwanted password, or even credit card number, out of iCloud Keychain easy enough.

How to delete saved passwords and credit cards from iCloud Keychain


I've never delved into that region if Settings before... I had to see what I ha stowed away. Surprisingly, not as much as I had expected.
After tinkering a little, I discovered that telling Siri to "open my Safari settings" would bring the Safari settings page right up. Then I could choose "Passwords & Autofill" from there. It's a bit quicker. :D
