How to AirDrop Passwords in iOS 12?


Among the numerous feature in iOS 12 including things like the OTP Autofill feature and the ability to scan QR codes directly from the Control Center, another cool one has just come to my attention.

Sharing passwords is now made more accessible than ever on your iPhone or iPad. You can now easily share passwords by just using AirDrop. This feature will let you share the password to any iOS or macOS device near you.

The receiver can then add the password to their Passwords and Accounts.

Remember while this will not come in handy if you are trying to share Wi-Fi password with another macOS or iOS user, but it can sure come in handy if you need your password to another device that you have been trying to log in on.

Especially if you are the forgetful type.
