am a long time mac user and just got an iPhone for the 1st time. i know where everything is in OSX, but not the iPhoneOS. obviously, there are a lot of similarities. i'm finding a fair number of things by poking around, looking for things that are present in OSX.

i downloaded and searched thru the iPhone OS4 manual and searched for "keychain". didn't find any mention of keychain. i search this forum and found some questions about keychains, but didn't see anything that really answered the questions or said where a keychain program might be.

1- does iPhone have a keychain program?
2- if so, can all the apps use the keychain or would it only be apple apps?
3- can the iPhone keychain be synced with the OSX keychain & how?
4- i'm considering 1Password for iPhone, particularly if the iPhone doesn't have a keychain. any feedback on this?

thanks for any advise-

MBookPro, MacPro, PBG4 1.5GHz, PBG4 500MHz, iPod 120Gig, Mac OS X (10.6.4), iPhone 4

    The iOS doesn't have a Keychain app. The passwords are stored in each of the associated apps instead of in the main OS itself. As for websites, Safari saves caches and cookies.

    ok, thanks!

    looks like 1Password might be the best option.

    anybody have any advise about 1Password? i saw some posts in the app store about crashes, but i wasn't sure if that had to do with a software update or a new install of iPassword...

    thanks for any suggestions-
