Getting locked out of your apps or iPhone can be troubling. It worsens when you keep trying different passwords and they don't work. You might begin to question whether or not you even knew the password from the start. As an iPhone expert, I can tell you that to be able to handle your password problems on your iPhone, the first thing you should know is how it works?

How Does Password Management Work on iOS and iPadOS?

iPhones have a feature called iCloud Keychain. This feature is your password manager, and it stores your passwords from WiFi, apps, websites, credit card details, and other secure information. The best part is that it keeps this information updated across all your devices. Devices running iOS 7 and later are supported. 

The iCloud Keychain allows you to monitor your passwords and gets alerted in cases of a potential data leak. It is also responsible for auto-filling your information when entering your login information on a Safari account and WiFi passwords on any approved device. This saves you the challenge of manually updating passwords on all your devices.

5. Why Can't I Change Passwords on My iPhone?

It is possible that you tried changing your passwords or passcode, and it didn't work. This can be because you entered an incorrect password or were locked out of your device. To ensure you are not entering your password wrongly, carefully tap the characters in the password or passcode. For most apps, you can select Forgot Password and get an email link to reset it. If you are locked out, this is due to entering the wrong passcode six times in a row. You can either enter the right passcode, clear your iPhone entirely from a PC (iTunes) or use Mobitrix LockAway.

Issues with passcode and password can be frustrating, particularly when you cannot remember them. While it is recommended that you use strong passwords to secure your iPhone, accounts, and apps, you should opt for passwords you can remember ad change your passwords and passcode frequently.
