    Keep your authentication details safe

    Not having to remember username and password when logging into apps is one less thing to worry about in your busy life. However, saving all your authentication details in one place might also be a bad idea. Cybercriminals would have a field day if they were able to access it, among other possible scenarios.


    Fortunately, Apple gives you the option to save them or not to save them. Clearing saved passwords from your devices not only keeps your data safer, but you can also exercise a little more memory when you remember them, which isn't a bad thing.
