I have set an iCloud keychain password to an account. I now can not find the password in order to be able to use the account in a non apple device.

Where can I find a record of all the passwords I have set with my apple account?

    You are responsible for keeping your own passwords.  No one else keeps a record.  If you forgot your iCloud keychain security code you'll have to reset it as explained here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5834.

    Pascal, have you got an iMac with Keychain on? 

     

    If you have, I can explain how to get your password details, provided you know your Keychain password.

    What I mean is, there is a way of getting all the passwords that you have had set with Keychain - as long as you know the password to get into Keychain itself.

    Yes I do. Please tell me how to do it.

     

    Thank you very much

    First you need to access Keychain.  It's in your Launchpad, but if you can't see it there, go to Spotlight Search (magnifying glass at top right hand corner of your screen) and type in Keychain.  Click on the Keychain app in the results.  This will open Keychain Access for you.

     

    - What you do then is find the app or website that you want the password for.

    - Double click on it. 

    - In the smaller window that opens, at the bottom will be an unchecked box entitled Show password:

    - Click on this, and another window will open asking you  for your Keychain password.  Enter that, then click "Allow" and your Keychain generated cryptic password will be displayed. 

     

    You have to repeat the procedure by double clicking for any other password that you require.
