With the large number of accounts and passwords that we currently manage, it is practically impossible to remember each and every one of them. In the case of not remembering the login credentials of any of our user account in a Web service or application on a mobile device, we will have to obtain them manually from the place where we store it. However, to solve this type of problem, devices such as iOS (iPhone or iPad) incorporate the possibility of saving the passwords and users of your login so as not to have to remember them when you do not remember those credentials.

Apple incorporates a very useful function in its iOS mobile devices such as iPhone or iPad, thanks to which you can store the logins (username and password) of any website or installed application. In addition, if that was not enough, Apple also incorporates the iCloud Keychain function that allows you to synchronize these login credentials on any Apple device in which you use the same ID of the apple company.
Thanks to the function of saving iPhone or iPad passwords, when the login screen is displayed on your iOS device, whether on a website or in an installed application, a button will be displayed in the central part of the screen (just above on the keyboard) with the name Passwords. This will take you to the list of saved logins, but not before using your fingerprint or security code to access that list. From here you can select the username and password to use to log in with your account on the app or website where you are.
Sometimes iPhone or iPad offers the option to store your login password at the same time you access your account. However on other occasions it does not. This does not mean that you cannot save the logins of your favorite Web or Apps on your IPhone or iPad, only that you will have to do it manually.
