If you're not using iCloud as your password manager, you're missing out. Here's why: If you have any of Apple's main devices — iPhone, iPad or Mac — that means you have an Apple ID and you have access to iCloud, Apple's cloud-based storage service. iCloud makes sure that the information on Apple's default apps (such as Files, Mail, Calendar, Photos and Notes) is backed up and synced across all your various devices. For example, it's the reason you can access the same Notes file on your Mac and iPhone, or the same photos on your iPhone and iPad. iCloud also offers a handy built-in password manager. This means that all your usernames and passwords are automatically stored in iCloud and are accessible on any device logged into your Apple account. Best of all, it's free!
