It's no surprise that everyone now has some kind of user ID and password. There are a lot of people who use different accounts for the same application or site.
Even if you try to remember these IDs and passwords, it will be hard if there are many. However, if you use a common ID and password, or leave a note or a sticky note, there is a risk of unauthorized access. It is also a lot of work to log in every time you use a site or app. But, it is also a security concern to always log in.
You can save your ID and password in Safari. In this article, you will learn how to save and confirm your ID and password, how to log in, and how to delete them. Unlike memo, Touch ID or passcode is required, so you don't have to worry about leakage.
Save your ID and password at loginLet's save the ID and password. Here's how to do it, using Twitter as an example. First, access Twitter from Safari and enter your username and password as usual.
▲Access Twitter from Safari (left). Enter username and password (right)
Then you are asked, "Would you like to save this password?". Now tap "Save Password". The save is complete.
▲Tap "Save Password" to answer the question, and your ID and password are saved.
You can now verify your ID and password at any time. It also saves you from having to type when you log in.
Confirm saved ID and passwordIt's easy to check your saved ID and password. Select 'Account & Password' from 'Settings' and tap 'App & Website Passwords'. Unlock using Face ID or Touch ID.

The switched 'Passwords' screen allows you to confirm the ID and password saved for each site domain. To view the details, tap the appropriate domain.

▲Log in screen. Tap 'Password' on the keyboard (left). Unlock iPhone with Touch ID, Face ID, or passcode (right)
When security is disabled, the 'AutoFill Passwords' screen appears. So I chose the Twitter domain. The screen automatically switches to the login screen and the username and password are already entered, so you just need to log in.
▲Tap the domain of the site or application you want to log in with AutoFill Passwords (left). The screen changes and the registered ID and passcode are automatically entered (right).
If you're on a website, you can do the same thing quickly. Depending on the site, if you tap the input field on the login screen, your password or ID will appear at the bottom of the screen, and you can log in just by tapping.
Deleting saved ID and passwordsIf you've saved the wrong password or updated it, delete the ID and password.
Open the 'Passwords' screen using the same procedure used to confirm the saved ID and password. Switch to the Password screen, then tap 'Edit' in the upper right corner. Select the domain you want to delete.
▲Tap "Edit" in the upper right (left) Select the domain you want to delete (right)
Next, tap 'Delete' on the upper left. Select 'Delete' for "Are you sure you want to delete the selected password?" and you are done.
▲Tap 'Delete' on the upper left (left) Select 'Delete' Again (Right)
You can also slide the domain to the left to remove it. Use this handy feature to securely store your ID and password, as well as simplify the hassle of logging in.
