Siri Tip of the Day: Show Passwords

Siri can help you find your passwords, assuming you saved them in the first place.

Ever wonder what your password is for a particular website or app? Of course you have. The iPhone and iPad can save those passwords for you, and you can go to Settings/Passwords & Accounts to view them, but you have to find the one you want and that can be a pain.

Siri to the rescue: just say “What’s my Amazon password” or “Show me my FatCow password” and Siri will take you to the right place in the Passwords & Accounts list. Actually what it does is it does a search of the Passwords & Accounts list, same as you can, but Siri does it faster than you.
