The iCloud Keychain feature is quite useful. iOS 15.4 and macOS 12.3 allow users to access their usernames and passwords for apps and websites quickly and efficiently, making signing in across Apple devices a breeze. But, if there’s a niggle, it’s that the functionality doesn’t always bother with usernames. However, Apple will address this issue in the upcoming iOS and macOS software releases.

In iOS 15.4 and macOS 12.3, Safari will no longer save passwords without usernames
Apple released the third betas of iOS 15.4, iPadOS 15.4, and macOS Monterey 12.3 to developers earlier this week. (Public beta testers can now participate as well.) And, with that new update, Ricky Mondello (@rmondello), an Apple Safari employee, confirmed on Twitter (via https://www.macrumors.com/) that iCloud Keychain is getting an upgrade. Specifically, how it saves passwords without requiring a username It won’t do it anymore, for the most part. That’s great.
iCloud Keychain can happily save a password for an app or website that does not have a username linked with it right now. Depending on how the log-in process is managed, this may not be an issue right now. However, if the user tries to log in again later and iCloud Keychain doesn’t have a username to match the password, problems may develop.
iCloud Keychain in iOS 15.4, iPadOS 15.4, and macOS Monterey 12.3 will no longer save passwords without usernames, according to Mondello. Before the password is saved, the app will ask the user for a username. And it appears that Safari will try to fill in a username for you depending on the information you provide:
When the software updates for iOS, iPadOS, and macOS are released, the new capability should be available to all users. The changes are scheduled to be released in March.
In related news, in iOS 15.4, iCloud Keychain will allow users to add notes to their saved passwords.
