Apple Watch For Password On Mac [TOP]
You can also use your Apple Watch to approve other requests to enter your administrator password. This works any time you need to type your Mac password, such as when viewing passwords in Safari settings, unlocking a locked note, or approving installation of an app.
Apple Watch For Password On Mac
When your Mac asks you to approve with your Apple Watch or enter your password, just double-click the side button on your Apple Watch. Your password is automatically entered without having to type it.
Unfortunately, you'll have to factory reset your Apple Watch in order to set a new password. On the bright side, you'll be able to restore your watch from a backup, which means you won't lose any data.
Important: You will need to know your Apple ID password to reset your Apple Watch. If you do not know it off the top of your head, you may also want to take this time to reset your Apple ID password.
Resetting your watch may take ten minutes or more in some cases, so be patient and leave it on the charger until it unpairs from your phone and is reset to factory settings. Once finished, you can re-pair it with your iPhone.
Keeper is a Zero-Knowledge platform, which means your Mac passwords and private information are stored in your personal encrypted digital vault and only accessible by you. The data stored in your Keeper vault is encrypted and decrypted locally on your Mac using keys that are derived by your master password. No one else can decrypt your data (not even us).
KeeperFill automatically generates strong passwords and then autofills them into the websites you access on your Mac. Long, random passwords are the best way to protect your information and reduce your exposure to data breaches. Keeper's password generator instantly creates and remembers ultra-secure passwords with one click. Once you have your address and credit card information stored on your Mac, you can then use KeeperFill to securely autofill the information into websites.
Furthermore, likewise, please make sure that all of your Apple Watch apps are up to date. An app can cause your watch to get stuck in an endless loop of asking for the Apple ID password. On your watch, open the App Store app and then go to Account > Updates and tap Update All. You can also turn on automatic updates by going to Settings > App Store.
On your iPhone, try to sign in again. To do this, open the Apple Watch app on your paired iPhone, then tap the My Watch tab and go to General > Apple ID and sign in by re-entering your Apple ID password. Enter your password here and then follow the onscreen instructions.
Are you seeing repetitive verification popups or notifications on your iPhone asking you to enter your Apple ID password? Even after entering the correct password, it reappears asking for the password over and over again!
Sometimes, after you have entered the correct Apple ID password, the authentication is successful, but due to some temporary glitch, your iPhone may not think so and continue to ask for your Apple ID password.
This is almost a sure-shot way to fix the iPhone repeatedly asking for the Apple ID password issue. Since it involves a couple of steps that temporarily remove contacts, calendars, and other things from your device, we listed it below the basic solutions. Here are instructions to sign out of your Apple ID and sign in again.
However, I found a few password manager apps that are better than Keychain in every way. The iOS password managers on this list provide end-to-end encryption, two-factor authentication (2FA), password security auditing, and a range of extra security features. Most of the password managers on this list also have Apple Watch compatibility. Plus, they sync passwords across devices, browsers, and operating systems, and they let users securely share both passwords and other sensitive data, like notes or bookmarks.
1Password offers excellent security for iOS and comes with a wide range of intuitive features in an easy-to-use interface. It integrates really well with iOS, auto-filling passwords and other personal information with just a few taps.
What sets Keeper apart from other iOS password managers is its One-Time Share function. From the iOS app, Keeper users can temporarily share passwords, files, payment card details, or other details via AirDrop or by sending a secure link without the recipient needing a Keeper account. Recipients can then open the shared link to view and use the shared item for a limited time (set by the sender). This is great if you need to quickly share streaming site login details with someone in your household or payment card details with a partner.
RoboForm has the best form-filling capabilities of any iOS password managers on the market. It comes with 7 pre-built identity templates for everything from addresses and passports to vehicle registration, and you can also create a custom form template. In my tests, RoboForm accurately auto-filled complex web forms like automobile insurance forms without missing any fields.
NordPass is a secure and easy-to-use iOS password manager. It uses the advanced XChaCha20 encryption algorithm and has good vault auditing and dark web monitoring features. However, the iOS version lacks features like emergency access. NordPass Free offers unlimited password storage and biometric 2FA support, but the Premium and Family plans add multi-device access, password sharing, and password auditing. NordPass comes with a 30-day free trial, and you can test it out with a 30-day money-back guarantee.
Password Boss is secure, feature-rich, and easy to use. It comes with all of the basic password management features, including unlimited storage, syncing across multiple devices, and two-factor authentication. It also has useful extra features like a secure browser, a built-in two-factor authenticator, and a remote delete feature.
Bitwarden Free includes unlimited password storage across unlimited devices, unlimited password sharing with 1 user, and 2FA compatibility with TOTP authenticators like Authy. Bitwarden Premium adds vault auditing tools, a built-in 2FA authenticator, and 1 GB of encrypted storage.
The third-party password managers on this list make it easy to sync your data across all devices, OS, and browsers. Top third-party password managers like 1Password, Dashlane, and LastPass all come with industry-standard security features, better password sharing and auditing, and a wide range of useful extras like account recovery (LastPass is the best for this), Travel Mode (1Password), virtual payment cards (1Password), and even a VPN (Dashlane). Finally, these third-party password managers offer family plans that come with intuitive family dashboards and cover up to around 5 users on all devices (1Password is the only brand on the market that lets you add as many users as you like under a single account for a small fee).
The third-party password managers on this list are more secure, all coming with 256-bit AES encryption (or similar), zero-knowledge protocols, and two-factor authentication. They can do a lot more than just save and store passwords, as well.
Yes, every premium third-party password manager offers multi-device sync across different operating systems and browsers. Avira Password Manager even offers coverage for unlimited devices on its free plan, and LastPass Free provides coverage for either unlimited mobile or unlimited desktop devices.
You can enter up to 10 digits. As always, picking an appropriate Apple Watch password is a balancing act between ease of use and increased security. Entering a 10-digit code on your iPhone is pretty easy. But remembering that 10-digit code? That may prove a little harder. You might want to write it down somewhere safe while you learn it, or keep the number in the secure vault of your favorite password manager. Or maybe you might opt to use a slightly shorter passcode.
I waited for two-factor authentication to arrive, never turning on the earlier two-step verification. When I turned on the newer technology, I changed my Apple ID password at the same time because the old password had been in use for a while. That was probably the main source of the problems that ensued.
It took two full days of responding to error alerts and other failures for the new Apple ID password to "take" and give me reasonable functionality. But it kept going bad from time to time on one machine or another for several days, forcing me to re-enter the new password again and again. In the process, I probably got more than 150 alerts on all my devices, telling me that my Apple ID had been added to FaceTime or Messages or whatever on a "new" iPad, a "new" iPhone, a "new" Mac Pro, or a "new" MacBook Pro. I was able to enter the two-factor authentication 6-digit code
