    Default Is iCloud Keychain Safe?

    Can anyone out there tell me how secure iCloud keychain is? I assume it's safe, but would be wonderful to hear more background info and stories on iCloud Keychain use!

    will probably offer the best information.

    I personally use it and love it, saves me a lot of time. I log into most accounts only on my Mac, so when I need to open something on my iPhone or iPad, I don't have to play the password guessing game.

    I think it's safe from a technical security standpoint. It uses high encryption to protect the passwords in transit. I think the largest vulnerability is in fact physical security. Strong passwords mean nothing if someone can easily log onto your system and get a password. So you must set up passwords and/or passcodes on all your devices to be safe.
