When Apple launched iOS 12, it introduced a great password manager. The password manager is similar to the one you see on the Chrome web browser. With the iOS password generator, when you sign up for services on websites and in apps, you can let your iPhone create a strong password for your accounts.
iOS Password Generator
The iOS password generator is enabled by default on all iPhones, and when it detects a supported website or app, it suggests a unique & complex password. It also provides you few password manager options, such as:
Use Strong Password: This one selects the generated password.
No Special Characters: This one generates a strong password consisting of only numbers & letters. To use it, tap on Other options > No special Characters.
Easy to Type: This one generates a strong password that is easy to type. To use it, select Other options > Easy to Type.
Choose My Own Password: This one lets you create your own password. To use it, select Other options > Choose My Own Password.
Once you generate a password with the iOS password generator, your iPhone stores the passwords in the iCloud keychain and fills them on sites & apps automatically. While the feature is convenient as it saves you from the hassle of remembering passwords, many users want to turn it off for genuine reasons.
