There are many reasons why we need to share passwords but while reading this you might think or have in your mind that every time in ads and the news we read and listen “Don’t share your password with anyone.” But in some cases, we need to share passwords with friends and family. We will also discuss some common reasons why we need to share passwords.
In a family we all need to access an account for example a utility bill or others bills. We are all responsible for managing the accounts and must have the knowledge of when to pay the bills and when the last day to pay the bill is. So that to prevent extra charges. In business we need to share social accounts with employees to manage the accounts and we also need to have access when we share passwords at that time. So there are tons of reasons to share passwords but here is the common thing: we share passwords with parties that we know mutually. We don’t recommend you share passwords with those you don’t know.
In iOS 17 for iPhone and iPadOS 17 for iPad, Apple introduced a feature that allows you to securely share passwords and passkeys with people in your contacts. This new feature is also named “Share Password,” and it enables you to share passwords among the people in your contact list. Here’s how to use this innovative feature.
Let’s discuss how this new feature, Family Passwords, works: In this family share feature you have the ability to create a group from your contacts whom you trust and then you can share passwords and passkeys with them.
What’s the difference between passwords and passkeys? In a passkey the user can sign in to the app or any sites the same way as unlocking your device using face scan and fingerprint. In a password, you have to fill in the passwords manually.
In this Family Passwords feature it allows you to share passwords and passkeys for multiple apps, social media accounts and utility bills. Each person in the group has access to add, change and share passwords. You can add people from your contacts whom you want to share passwords with.
