    I'm a little wary to use this but it sounds useful. How do you access passwords that have been saved in iCloud Keychain? What if it auto-generates a complicated password for you that you then need to log in to from a device that's not yours - how do you do that? Or if you want to switch to Windows or Android down the line, can you export or access your stored passwords?

    It sounds convenient but dangerous - they always say don't have the same password for multiple logins - now all of my logins will be compromised if someone gets my into my iTunes account?

    I know it's not mandatory to use it, just wondering how people will deal with these concerns :)

    It's no different in using 1Password. Most of the time you have your phone on you.
    Your passwords are encrypted and need a Pin code to use, so if iTunes was compromised it would not matter.
