Today at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference Keynote, while talking about Mac OS X Mavericks, Senior Vice President of Software Engineering Craig Federighi announced a new password manager called iCloud Keychain for Safari.
The feature can remember website logins, credit card numbers and WiFi network information and sync them across all systems. It can also autofill credit card information.
Back in April 2012, MacRumors noted that Apple had included strings in developer betas of Safari 5.2 hinting at secure password suggestions coming to Safari in OS X Mountain Lion. Apple did not, however, ultimatelyintroduce the feature for developer or public builds of Mountain Lion.
