Find Passwords Saved in Safari for iPad & iPhone on ios 11


One of the great things about using ios devices like iPads and iPhones is the was Apple saves and stores passwords for you. They call this function the Keychain. For many years Keychain passwords were found under Settings – Safari. But in ios 11 Apple reorganized things and now stores Safari passwords in a different location along with email accounts. Finding them can be challenging.

Finding Passwords in Settings

You can always use the search bar that Apple added to ios settings a few years back. But that can provide a confusing assortment of responses because there are now several different locations for different types of passwords. I find myself spending too much time searching for my Safari passwords over and over again, which I usually want to retrieve to copy and paste one into my password manager. So I decided to write this post and add these screenshots once I found out where they are located now.

Go to Settings and scroll down

Keep Scrolling Past Privacy

(Privacy is a place I kept looking for them!)

You’ll Find Them Under Accounts & Passwords


That’s all there is too it! Once there you’ll need to provide your device PIN, use Touch ID or Face Unlock to access the passwords your device has saved. Then you can use the search bar to search for them with a specific website’s name. When you find the one you need, you can edit it or copy a password onto the clipboard to paste into something else.

Hi...I'm the author of 2 main blogs on WordPress...vsatips...where I write tech tips for mobile devices...primarily ios...2nd is vsatrends...where I write less about tech things and more about everything else. I also host a YouThe channel. I use it to better illustrate some of the posts from vsatips and for other random 'How To' topics. I'm a huge fan of YouTube because I think you can learn pretty much anything in the world there. Sometimes I search for something I can't do and don't find anything. A lot of my videos come from that influence...if I do eventually figure out how to do something :-)
