What you need to know

  • iCloud for Windows has been updated to include a password manager.
  • The password manager works with Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome.
  • With support for password management, iCloud could be a viable alternative to the best password managers on Windows 10.

A major new feature just rolled out for iCloud on Windows 10 with the app's update to version 12.5. The app now supports iCloud passwords, allowing people with Windows PCs to sync and manage their passwords that they've entered into Apple's cloud. The move makes iCloud a more attractive option for people with PCs. Previously, the app's lack of support for iCloud passwords made some people turn to other password managers like 1Password or LastPass.

The update was spotted by Rene Ritchie, who shared some screenshots and a brief description on Twitter.

The news has led to excitement on the web, as people who avoided using iCloud as a password manager can now look at it as a viable option on a PC.

The password manager in iCloud for Windows works with both Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome.
