Hello, so how does this keychain really works? It saves your forms (passwords, nicknames etc) somewhere online and even if you change your laptop you log in with your old account and you have them? Is keychain on when I go on the form and a drop down menu comes off and there is a key on it?

I'd still pay and use a password manager as a backup(!), 1Password and Lastpass are both good and cross platform. Nothing worse than a computer barfing, and losing all you passwords. Hence the use of TWO independent methods: iCloud Keychain AND 1Password/Lastpass.
