iOS tip: How to manage (or delete) your saved passwords in SafariIt’s easy to tap “Yes” whenever Safari for iPhone or iPad asks whether you’d like to save a web password you just entered. But what happens to all those passwords once you’ve saved them, and how do you edit or delete them?

The answer: just dig into your Safari settings, where you can view a list of all your previously saved web passwords.

Once you get to your list of saved passwords, you can view, edit or delete them.

Once you’re there, you can edit or delete any saved password entries, and—if you’re really worried about security—you can even ask Safari to stop bothering you about saving any more web passwords.

To see your big list of web passwords, tap Settings, Safari, Passwords; you’ll then need to enter your passcode or confirm your identity with Touch ID.

Go ahead and tap any entry to view your saved username or password for a given site; you can also tap the Edit button in the top corner to make any changes.
