If you have saved passwords on your iPhone or iPad, the following guide will teach you how you can go about viewing these saved passwords on your iOS devices. Read on to learn how to do it.
In order to make it easier for users to access your accounts, Apple has added the ability to store your account passwords on your iPhone and iPad. Once you have stored a password, you can use it the next time you log-in to the website where you have your account. It eliminates the need of manually entering the password each time you want to log-in to an account in an app or on a website.
Sometimes you may just want to view the saved passwords on your iPhone and iPad. Apple allows you to do it and you can access and view your passwords like regular text on your iOS-based devices. The following are the instructions on how you can go about doing it on your devices.
The feature that saves the passwords on your iPhone and iPad is called Keychain. It works across your Apple devices including your Mac and lets you store, view, and use passwords where and when needed.
If your passwords are saved in Keychain and you would like to view them, the following is how to see saved passwords on your iPhone and iPad.
Step 1 Tap on the Settings app on your springboard to launch the settings panel for your device. That is where your stored Keychain passwords are located.
Step 2 When the settings panel launches, find and tap on the option that says Accounts & Passwords. Your passwords should be in there.
Step 3 On the following screen, tap on the option that says App & Website Passwords to view your saved password in Keychain.
On the screen that follows, you will find all the passwords that are saved in the Keychain for your iPhone and iPad. You can browse your passwords in the alphabetical order or you can use the search feature to search for a specific password.
That is how you view saved passwords on an iPhone and iPad.

Step 1 Launch the Settings app from the springboard of your device.
Step 2 When the app launches, find and tap on the option that says Safari. It will open the Safari settings panel for you.
