In iOS 11, Apple made it easier for you to share passwords with friends. At the time, it was only Wi-Fi passwords, which made sense. "What is WiFi?" grows old after a while. But now, whether you use iOS 12 or 13, you can share any password that you want with any iPhone, all with one of the best features of iOS: AirDrop.
This feature works with Apple's iCloud keychain, so if you use this service for your password management, you'll find this trick very useful. It even works with any AirDrop compatible device, including iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac. Just know that the recipient of your password must first be in your contacts.
AirDropping passwords could not be simpler. First find the relevant password in Settings -> Passwords & Accounts -> Website and app passwords. Verify yourself via Face ID, Touch ID or access code.
Then choose the account and password that you want to share. On the account page you can long press on the account name or password and then tap "AirDrop". Either way, you share both pieces of information, so it doesn't matter which one you choose.
Now just tap the device with which you want to share your password, keeping in mind that it is a contact of yours. If you experience problems seeing the receiver, remember that both your device and yours must have Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled.
What does the receiver see?
At the end of the recipient, they receive an AirDrop request like any other that they can choose to & # 39; Accept & # 39; or & # 39; Reject & # 39 ;. If they choose "Accept", the password is automatically stored in the Website & App passwords folder and, by extension, their iCloud keychain.
