Share This:

Welcome to our blog post about the amazing Safari Suggested Password feature!

We’ve all been there: you’re trying to sign up for an account and you have no idea what password to use. You want something secure, but you also don’t want to forget it. Well, with Safari Suggested Password, this problem is a thing of the past!

Safari Suggested Password is a feature that helps you create strong, secure passwords for your accounts. It works by suggesting passwords that are based on your personal information and preferences. These passwords can be edited if you wish, or you can simply choose one of the suggested passwords that Safari presents to you.

The great thing about Safari Suggested Password is that it stores all of your passwords in one place so that they are easy to access and remember. When filling out a form or signing up for an account on any website, all you have to do is tap the password text box and select “Suggest Strong Password” from the menu. This will bring up a window with several suggested passwords that meet your security criteria. From here, you can choose one of these suggested passwords or edit them as needed. If desired, you can also save new passwords using this feature.

Additionally, when using Safari Suggested Password, make sure to enable “User names and Passwords” in your Safari settings so that any contact information saved in Contacts will be automatically filled in when signing up for an account. Another tip: if making changes to a previously saved password, be sure to tap the key icon from the top right of the keyboard and select “Other Passwords” so that your changes will take effect correctly.

Safari Suggested Password is an incredibly useful tool for creating strong, secure passwords without having to remember them all! We hope this blog post has helped explain how this fantastic feature works and how it can help make life much easier when creating accounts online. Thank you for reading!

Changing Safari’s Suggested Password

In order to change your Safari suggested password, you’ll need to open the Safari app and navigate to the website for which you wish to update the password. Once you are on the website, select the username field and enter your username. You will then be prompted to enter your password. At this point, you can either choose the suggested password that appears or tap ‘Use Strong Password’ for a different option. If you would like to edit the suggested password, tap ‘Other Options’, then ‘Edit Strong Password.’ Here you can make any changes you’d like, then save them. Lastly, if you’d like a different strong password altogether, tap ‘Other Options’ and ‘Edit Strong Password’ once more and select a new one from the list of suggestions.

Safari Not Suggesting a Password

If Safari isn’t suggesting a password, it could be because the website you’re trying to log into isn’t saved in your list of user names and passwords. You can make sure that Safari is set up to autofill by going to Safari > Settings, clicking AutoFill, and then making sure “User names and passwords” is selected. Additionally, if you want Safari to autofill contact information like your name or address, make sure that any information you want autofilled is saved in a My Card in Contacts. That way, Safari will have access to the information it needs when you need it.

Finding Suggested Passwords on an iPhone

To find suggested passwords on your iPhone, open the Settings app and tap Passwords (or Passwords & Accounts in iOS 13 or earlier). When prompted, use Face ID or Touch ID, or enter your passcode. You’ll see a list of all the websites and apps which have saved passwords associated with them. To view a suggested password, select the website or app and you should see a list of auto-generated passwords.

Accessing Safari Password Preferences

The Safari password preferences can be found in the Safari menu. To access them, first open Safari and then click on Settings (or Preferences) from the Safari menu. Once inside the settings window, click on the Passwords tab to view and manage your saved passwords.

Troubleshooting Why an iPad Has Stopped Suggesting Passwords

Your iPad may have stopped suggesting passwords if iCloud Keychain has been disabled or is not set up correctly. To make sure that iCloud Keychain is enabled, go to your iPad’s Settings and tap [your name], then choose iCloud. Slide to turn on iCloud Keychain. You might be asked for your passcode or Apple ID password. Once enabled, your iPad should start suggesting passwords again.

Troubleshooting Mac Password Suggestion Issues

If your Mac isn’t suggesting passwords, it’s likely because the AutoFill setting in Safari is turned off. To turn it on, open Safari, choose Safari > Settings, then click AutoFill. Make sure User names and passwords is selected. Additionally, if you want your Mac to suggest specific passwords, make sure that the username and password information is saved in your My Card in Contacts. That way, when you’re entering information on a website, your Mac will recognize the saved user names and passwords and offer to autofill them for you.


In conclusion, Safari Suggested Password is an incredibly convenient tool for creating secure passwords that are difficult to guess. It allows users to easily generate strong passwords and store them securely in their My Card in Contacts for easy access. With Safari Suggested Password, users can create passwords that are both complex and easy to remember, making it easier to protect sensitive information online.
