iOS 14 also includes a new feature that warns you if you use a password that could compromise an account on a third-party service.
In the month of June, Apple unveiled the new features of its ecosystem in an online version of the conference WWDC. And of course, iOS 14 was part of the major new features announced during this conference. As we mentioned in a previous article, the new version of the operating system Apple includes a large number of improvements, including a redesign of the screen of receptions that people use to access apps, and more customization for the widgets.
And for those who are concerned about the protection of their personal data, iOS 14 also includes a new feature that will warn the user when the user uses a password that presents a risk. This new feature is mentioned in an article published a few days ago by the site 9to5Mac.
In essence, this new functionality is related to iCloud Keychain, which allows you to store and remember passwords. It is accessed on iOS by going to settings, and then in the section on passwords. And as explained by 9to5Mac, iOS 14, there is a new menu that displays ” security recommendations “. And these recommendations can get you to replace a password if it is easy to guess because it’s too simple, but the feature also warns you if it is possible that your password has been affected by a data breach.

Objective : protect your passwords
This is an important feature to protect accounts online. And currently, many players already offer similar services. For example, Google Chrome shows alerts when you enter a password that is assigned by a data leak. ” When you enter your credentials on a Web site, Chrome will warn you now if your user name and password have been compromised in a data breach on a website or an application. It will suggest you change them everywhere where they have been used “, said AbdelKarim Mardini, senior product manager, in 2019. Mozilla also has an equivalent of this feature, on its application Lockwise.
But if you use the ecosystem of Apple, a built-in feature to the iOS will be much more practical. Otherwise, as a reminder, Apple also offers a system of login which allows you to connect to third-party applications with the Apple account (instead of using the logins of Facebook or Google).
