  • Your iPhone keeps a list of all your saved passwords, and has a menu to let you find passwords when you need them.
  • The passwords are located in the Passwords & Accounts section of the iPhone’s Settings app.
  • You can use Settings to delete passwords you no longer need, edit them, or use Settings to open websites to revise your passwords.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

If you practice good online security, you should have a unique, strong password for every web site you visit — that means you don’t repeat passwords, and you make them complex with a lengthy combination of upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and special symbols.

Of course, you can’t possibly remember all those passwords, which is why Safari on your iPhone offers to remember them for you. Usually, Safari suggests auto-filling the right password at the appropriate time, but you can also display and manage the complete set of remembered passwords as well.

You have several options:

  • If you no longer need a password saved and want to delete it, swipe it to the left and tap “Delete.”
  • If you want to edit a password, tap it and then tap “Edit” in the top right corner of the screen. Tap “Done” to save your changes.
  • If you want to go to the website and change your password, you can tap the password and then tap “Change Password on Website.” Safari will open the appropriate site where you can update your password.
