Users of Apple’s Safari browser will soon be able to securely share their passwords and passkeys with each other.
Apple said at its WWDC 2023 keynote that the feature, which will be released as part of MacOS 14 Sonoma, will allow a group of users to add and edit passwords and passkeys, allowing everyone in the group to keep them up to date.
The feature uses iCloud Keychain, and transfers are end-to-end encrypted, Apple said. That way, if a cyber criminal’s information is leaked, it will be useless to them.
Apple announced at an event on Monday that it is upgrading Safari’s private browsing feature to lock browsing windows when not in use. Apple said the improvements will completely block known trackers from loading on pages and remove tracking from browsed URLs.
Named after the famous Californian wine region, MacOS Sonoma offers a handful of major upgrades over MacOS 13 Ventura. Widgets are now more customizable and focus on gaming. Its new ‘Game Mode’ prioritizes CPU and GPU usage for whatever game you’re playing to boost frame rates.
