How to view Safari's saved passwords and credit card info on iPhone and iPad

Safari's iCloud Keychain makes it convenient for you to save passwords and credit card information. The data is stored in iCloud so you can use it across all of your Apple devices. But, some websites don't support the autofill feature.

You aren't out of luck if you need your credit card number but can't use autofill, though. You can manually look this information up in the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad. Here are the steps you need to finding that important data.

How to look up passwords

If you have a password saved in Safari's iCloud Keychain, chances are, you'll be able to use autofill on your iPhone or iPad, but just in case something goes wrong, here's how to find that information.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Scroll down and tap Safari.
  3. Under the General section, tap Passwords.

  1. Use Touch ID to sign in, or enter your four-digit code if you don't use Touch ID.
  2. Scroll down and tap the website name that you want the password for.
  3. Press and hold the password tab to copy it.
  4. Tap Copy.

Once copied, you can paste your password into whatever field you want.

How to set up autofill information

If you haven't set up Safari's autofill feature, you can quickly do so by adding your personal contact information.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Scroll down and tap Safari.
  3. Under the General section tap Autofill.

  1. Tap My Info.
  2. Select your name from your contacts list.

How to look up credit card information

If you need your credit card number and expiration date, you can look it up without having to log into a website that uses it.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Scroll down and tap Safari.
  3. Under the General section tap Autofill.

  1. Tap Saved Credit Cards.
  2. Use Touch ID to sign in, or if you don't use Touch ID, enter your four-digit code .
  3. Select the credit card number you want to view.

  • Now what would be awesome is if ios10 allows 3rd party apps to access safari key chain passwords (maybe verifying you allow access through touch id). Safari keychain is awesome but having to copy and paste passwords into apps takes away some of the awesomenesss
  • this is possible since iCloud Keychain was released, you can find apps that already support it (take Pinterest for example)...
    the problem is, devs are not adding the functionality to their apps... for a reason or another...
  • That would be really cool, I fully support that wishful idea.
  • Anyway to see my stored wifi passwords. I can see it in the macbook but not the phone. Sent from the iMore App
  • Same thing I was wondering, it's great when someone wants the WiFi password to just be able to get it up on my Mac, I really wish I could do this on iOS!
  • Unfortunately, not without a Jailbreak. If you are willing to put in the effort, you can use a password manager app like 1Password and manually add your Wifi passwords on iOS.
