Now, when Windows users access the new Passwords section, the dialog box that prompts the download will properly function. The description for the ‌iCloud‌ app still mentions support for the ‌iCloud‌ Passwords extension, however. It is available on Google Chrome Webstore to use on Windows.

Apple has launched a new browser extension that allows you to pull your Keychain passwords into Chrome (and with a little adjustment, Edge Chromium). More than just retrieving already created passwords that are stored in iCloud Keychain, iCloud Passwords also uploads those created in Google Chrome so they can be used on Apple devices.

The new extension comes with iCloud for Windows version 12.0 (via Engadget), which now has a new "passwords" option in the list of available services.

The company published the extension to the Chrome Web Store on Sunday night.

Apple released the iCloud passwords extension for Google's Chrome browser on Windows 10 to allow users to access passwords in Chrome that have been generated in Apple's Safari browser.

Click the blue Add to Chrome button. And if you use the same email address-password combination for multiple online accounts (to make it easier to remover your login every time), then cyber criminals could quickly invade your social media accounts, online shopping favourites, or worse still, your online banking portal.

You will now be able to insert passwords saved to your iCloud Keychain when logging into websites.

Be aware that the iCloud Passwords browser extension requires to have the latest version of iCloud for Windows on your PC, and the freshly-released version 12 includes a link to install the browser extension.
