We imagine that there are probably many iPhone users out there who are also Windows users when it comes to computers. This poses a slight problem because if you store most of your passwords using Apple’s iCloud Keychain, it will be difficult to access it on a Windows computer, but not anymore.

Apple has recently updated its iCloud for Windows application where in the latest update, it will bring iCloud Keychain to Windows. What this means is that if you need to access your passwords to your online accounts or just in general, you will be able to pull up that information in Windows itself, instead of having to reach for your phone.

This lets view, add, edit, copy, and paste their passwords and manage it from the application. There are also new iCloud extensions for Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome, so if you need a quick way to log into websites, you’ll be able to do so using either browser. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be an extension for Firefox, so Firefox users will have to use a different password manager.

You will need to make sure that your iCloud for Windows is updated to version 12.5 if you want to take advantage of this feature, so go ahead and download it from the Microsoft Store for the latest update.
