Apple Releases Chrome Browser Extension for iCloud Passwords on Windows

Apple has released an iCloud password extension for Google's Chrome browser on Windows that allows ‌iCloud‌ Keychain passwords to be used on PCs.

icloud passwords chome extension
Called simply "‌iCloud‌ Passwords," the extension allows users to access passwords in Google Chrome that have been generated in Apple's Safari browser. It also enables ‌iCloud‌ syncing of passwords generated in Chrome, making them available on Apple devices, too.

The feature was alluded to last week when Apple released a new version of iCloud for Windows 10, which included "Support for ‌iCloud‌ Passwords Chrome Extension," despite the extension being unavailable.

‌iCloud‌ Passwords is available now in the Chrome Web Store for both Windows and Mac.

Chrome? No thanks. Will take a Firefox version though, could stop paying 1password.

as far as I'm aware, there's no need for it on Mac. If you're signed into icloud keychain in system preferences, your passwords will automatically be available in chrome as they would be in Safari. At least, I *think* that's my experience. Hard to know sometimes which passwords are being filled in by which services
keychain works only with safari in macOS

Apple haven't even bothered to write a keychain app for iOS
It's not as powerful as Keychain Access, but there is a Passwords section in Settings.


) so I wouldn't move back even if they opened up Firefox support.

I like the fact I can fill in any field, as Bitwarden is pretty customisable. My router password, as just one example, would never be seen as a password field by Keychain/Safari but Bitwarden has no issues with it.

For me and my usage, I'm finding all of Apple's stock software getting worse and worse. I'm moving away from them one by one. This will also allow me to switch hardware (phone and laptop) in the future if necessary although I have no current plans to do that. I still like the hardware.
I think Apple's focus here is to make a solution that has the majority of the features for the majority of the people. Leaving a market segment open for higher-end alternatives (be it Bitwarden, 1Password or whatever else) doesn't make Apple's option "bad".
