Customers caught between Apple and Microsoft could now have a neater time managing passwords: it seems like iCloud Keychain is coming to Home windows 10 as a Chrome extension (via MacRumors).

The most recent model of iCloud for Home windows 10 consists of “Assist for iCloud Passwords Chrome Extension” within the record of recent options, and once you open the app, there’s a brand new Passwords-syncing choice. Checking the field will trigger a login immediate to come back up, together with a request for two-factor authentication. In response to Apple’s support page, you’ll must have two-factor turned on to your account to have entry to the characteristic, which might be a good selection since, in concept, you’re going to be syncing your whole passwords.
I say “in concept” as a result of after you log in once more, you’re prompted to obtain the iCloud Passwords extension for Chrome. Nevertheless, the obtain button simply takes you to a 404 web page, and looking out the Chrome Internet Retailer for the extension doesn’t flip up something.
