Apple had hinted the release of a new extension last week during the iCloud Windows 10 app update, which listed “Support for iCloud Passwords Chrome Extension” as a new feature.
The company has now officially introduced the extension, called iCloud Passwords. It is available for both Windows and Mac versions of Chrome, and will allow users to use passwords stored in their iCloud Keychain. As a result, juggling between Windows and Mac computers will become easier for those who use Chrome as their browser and iCloud Keychain in lieu of a dedicated password manager.
The new extension will allow users who have used Safari for automatically generating strong passwords on other platforms, to have access to these passwords in Chrome at the time of logging in. Moreover, the passwords will also be synced to iCloud, hence making them available on Apple devices.
The extension can be accessed from the Chrome Web Store.
