Setting it up is a breeze, and using it is even easier. With just one simple trick, you’ll never have to worry about forgetting passwords on your iPhone again.

The trick is to take advantage of your iPhone’s ability to securely store and autofill passwords across websites and apps, making logging in a breeze. This handy feature remembers your complex credentials and fills them in for you, saving you the hassle of recalling or looking them up.
