Using iCloud Keychain, Apple’s Safari browser stores and syncs all the passwords you use for different websites and apps through iCloud. And in iOS 14 and later, Apple provides security recommendations that warn you if the password you’re using is putting your account at risk.
Safari securely monitors your saved passwords using strong cryptographic techniques and regularly checks the origin of your passwords against a list of passwords in a secure and private, non-disclosure your password information to anyone, including Apple. If Safari detects a breach, Safari will warn you and can automatically generate a new secure password.

- You are using this password on other websites, which increases the risk for this account if one of the other accounts is compromised.
- This password appeared in a data breach, putting this account at high risk of being compromised. You should change your password immediately.
