iCloud Passwords Can Now Be Managed By Windows Users

The New iCloud Passwords App:

Apple’s new, dedicated iCloud Passwords app will provide you with some much-needed new features if you sync your iCloud Passwords with Windows. The software, which is included in the iCloud for Windows 12.5 update, allows you to search through your saved passwords, update them, add new ones, and erase login information you don’t need.

How To Use the New Tool?

Apple’s website describes how to use the new tool to manage your iCloud Passwords, but it’s very simple. You can open the app from the Start menu and make any necessary changes to your passwords. Your Apple devices will be updated as a result of your modifications.

If you switch between Windows and Mac, this upgrade makes utilizing iCloud to sync your passwords much more feasible (or who uses Windows and an iPhone). The ability to see and search a list of your saved passwords provides you more flexibility than the browser extension, and the ability to manage your passwords means you don’t have to use an Apple device.

Although the new tool isn’t as comprehensive as a dedicated password manager (or, for that matter, Keychain Access on Mac), it’s a huge improvement over the limited management options Windows users previously had for their iCloud Passwords.

Are any updates Available?

The 12.5 updates for iCloud for Windows are now available and can be downloaded in the Windows Store. If you don’t already have iCloud Password synchronization enabled on your Windows PC, you’ll need to do so via iCloud Settings before you can use the password manager, but it’s a swift process.
