Apple Passwords app rumored to launch at WWDC

Michail, 07 June 2024

Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is just three days away and Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman is back with another rumor ahead of the big event. According to the latest report, Apple will introduce a new Passwords app that will be a one-stop shop for managing passwords across iOS, iPadOS, macOS, visionOS and Windows devices. This will be a separate app/platform from the current iCloud Keychain used on Apple devices and will be a direct competitor to password managing services like LastPass and 1Password.

It will also sync across devices and have the ability to autofill and generate new passwords when signing up for platforms. Apple Passwords is also rumored to offer authentication codes like Google Authenticator and the ability to import passwords from other password-managing platforms.

True, I forgot to mention that 👍

Also, "Require Attention for Face ID" is a setting on iOS. Enable that.

Hey, thanks for that! It used to be pressing the power button four or five times in quick succession. Didn't realise it was now the power button+volume up/down until you see the power-down GUI
