Apple May Launch a New Password Manager for All Devices

| Updated on 10 June 2024

The WWDC 2024 is set to kick off on June 10 and Apple will reportedly launch a new password manager called Passwords. 

This information is shared by Apple enthusiast Mark Gurman from Bloomberg. He claims that the company will launch the new app as part of the iOS, iPadOS 18, and macOS 15. All these OS are set to debut as part of the WWDC 2024. 

Before this, Apple offered an easy way to save usernames and passwords as part of iCloud Keychain and allowed users to sync them across devices. Keychain is sort of a password manager that is hidden behind settings and it is not user-friendly. 

Now, the company wants to create a separate app based on Keychain features that is available on all devices and can be accessed easily. The new app, Passwords, will allow users to organize their login details into different categories and will also automatically fill in login and passwords when needed. 

The new app will also support verification codes like Google Authenticator. This app will also work on Vision Pro and Windows computers. 

Releasing this app puts Apple in competition with services like LastPass, Aura, and 1Password. This is not good news for these services as they provide more or less the same functionality. It is a good decision from Apple as they’ve already had Keychain which was doing the same thing but not in a very user-friendly way. 

Along with Passwords, Apple is likely to unveil some new things. However, much of the focus will be on AI and Machine Learning announcements.
