Manage Passwords on Apple Macs | The Best Way!

How to Manage Passwords on Apple Mac Computers – by Keith Thomas – Apple Specialist and Mac Computer Expert.

The days of using a notebook or paper to write down usernames and passwords is not a very good way of managing passwords on an Apple Mac computer or any Apple iPhone, or Apple iPad, or even on a Microsoft Windows PC or Android Smartphone.

The solution is rather simple to setup and to use if you use an Apple Mac computer, or if you use a Microsoft Windows PC computer, or a Apple iPhone or an Android mobile phone with either a PC or Apple Mac computer.

Apple Password Management If you have all Apple products – Apple iMac, MacBook, Apple iPhone, Apple iPad.

  • Both MacOS and Apple iOS has built in support for managing passwords on a Apple device.
  • Apple can suggest and store all of your usernames and passwords in the Apple iCloud.
  • If you need to know a password that has been saved, then using MacOS or iOS the password can be found.
  • The Apple manage password system is safe and secure to use, it has kept people safe since mobile.me from over 20 years ago!

Manage Passwords if you have both Apple and Microsoft Windows PC computers.

If you have Apple products, and you also have a Microsoft Windows PC computer, then the Apple password Management will not sync with the Microsoft Windows PC using Apple services.

To manage passwords across Apple Mac, MacOS, iOS, and on Windows 10 and Windows 11, use Microsoft Edge on all of the devices, you can also install Microsoft Edge for Apple Mac and for Apple iOS.

The Microsoft Edge website browser software can safety store your website user names and website passwords to a Microsoft OneDrive account. This will also sync bookmarks, as well as user names and passwords for websites.

Password Review techniques that you can do.

The best way to use the Manage Passwords on either Apple services or on Microsoft OneDrive services, is to let Apple or Microsoft create a unique password for you for each and every website that you have an account with. This can take time to setup, but it is the process of visiting each website and perform a request to change or update your password.

The idea of having a unique password for each website and service that you use, gives you the very best security when suing a computer or when using a iPhone, iPad, or a a Microsoft Windows PC computer or an Android smartphone or Android tablet.

Do not share a password with anyone or use a password that is easy to know, some tips on what not to do:

  • Never user Password123 as a password or Fred or Fred123
  • Avoid using passwords that use your house door number.
  • Do not use pets’ names or if you do add a unique number to the password.
  • Always use a special character (*&^%$£”!) if you do need to create a password for a website that does not support a unique password suggestion.
  • Do not use car registration numbers.
  • Never use a year in a password or use a date of birth.
  • A bad password to use would be your name+your date of birth.
  • You can use a colour like Green with a number and add a special character if you cannot think of a password to use, or better still get Apple or Microsoft to give you a password suggestion and add this to the Apple service or to Microsoft OneDrive password management.
