Is iCloud Keychain Secure?

Being able to write down points you don’t want to forget about an app or website in iCloud Keychain is, of course, valuable, as you’ve seen. However, while some people question the security of iCloud Keychain, it is still more trustworthy than most third-party password managers.

Furthermore, neither Apple nor any other third-party app knows about what you store in your iCloud Keychain. So it lets you manage your passwords yourself without relying on browser or Google-based password autofill, which is less secure because anyone can access your account without your knowledge.

Ultimately, iCloud Keychain requires additional authentication such as Face ID or passcode before auto-filling your password anywhere. And to access iCloud Keychain, of course, you’ll need to provide your passcode or Face ID. Although each software has its vulnerability shortcomings, I would say that iCloud Keychain is more secure than most password management apps for iOS or iPadOS.
