Simply called "iCloud Passwords," the new Google Chrome extension allows its users to use the same Safari passwords that they created on their Apple device with Chrome on Windows. Besides, iCloud Passwords also saves passwords created with Google Chrome on Windows to the iCloud Keychain for later use on Apple devices.

Those who use Chrome on Windows devices but also go online via Safari on their Apple devices can finally sync their passwords thanks to a new extension made by Apple. The iCloud Passwords browser extension for Google Chrome was added to the Chrome Web Store yesterday and it is obviously free to download and install.

Thanks to the aforementioned piece of code, the strong passwords created on iPhones, iPads, or Macs and saved to the iCloud Keychain can be used in Google Chrome on Windows PCs. More than just retrieving already created passwords that are stored in iCloud Keychain, iCloud Passwords also uploads those created in Google Chrome so they can be used on Apple devices.

With a size of just 154 KB, the extension is very small and should not slow down the browser at all. Its launch comes a few days after Apple released a new version of iCloud for Windows 10 which already included support for the extension before it became available for download.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
