It’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’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.
Want to delete a saved password? Go back to the main Passwords screen, tap the Edit button in the top-right corner, select any password entries you’d like to zap, then tap Delete. (Nope, there’s no Delete All button, unfortunately.)
Last but not least, you can set Safari to stop asking whether you’d like to save a web password. Go back to the main Settings screen, tap AutoFill, then toggle off the Names and Passwords setting.
