Apple brings password functionality to iCloud for Windows

Managing your passwords across all of your Apple devices has never been easier, thanks to iCloud Keychain. However, if you ever own a Windows PC for any special reason, whether it’s a primary or secondary computer, that might be a challenge especially when you rely on iCloud all the time.

Up until today, you would have to find a third-party password manager, such as LastPass. While some of the options are free to use, they do come with limitations.

Just recently, LastPass is limited to accessing passwords only one device type – either desktop or mobile.

Now, thanks to a recent significant update for iCloud for Windows, iCloud for Windows gets even more useful as you can finally managing iCloud-stored passwords on a Windows PC and access them across other iCloud devices, even another PC. Not only you can access to your saved usernames and passwords on the new iCloud Passwords app, but also, you can even add, edit, and copy/paste login credentials.

What’s more interesting is Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome now have new browser extensions, so you can paste credentials directly into your favorite website, without having to copy from another password manager.

Most importantly, everything is encrypted, including passwords. Even better, iCloud for Windows is always free to use, so you can download the app now from the Microsoft Store.
