I don't know if you're screwed, but you could go into System Preference > iCloud and try unchecking the Keychain box.Spoke too soon, last night I was installing the Mac security update and it asked me to activate iCloud Keychain (which I stupidly did). Now all my stuff is in iCloud Keychain - am I screwed now?
Ok - but does that erase my data from Apple's servers? I hope I didn't unleash Pandora's Box by agreeing to activate iCloud Keychain.I don't know if you're screwed, but you could go into System Preference > iCloud and try unchecking the Keychain box.
Full disclosure...I'm not a tech guy, so bear that in mind!
What is the secure notes feature you're talking about?Yes, use it daily to remember website logins and store secure notes. With iOS 7 it saves me a lot of time digging for login info when I'm on the go.
Aside from the small bugs with it in Mavericks I would consider myself a fan of it.
Not even a Vulcan?I remember all my own passwords. Nobody can hack my mind.
ya, but you loose the book, or forget passwords for are those sites.I use something way less complicated and non- tech based.
I have around 50 passwords that I can simply rattle right off without having to ask for a re-set or anything.
I have around 10 rarely used that I keep written down in a little book.
The system has so far:
Worked well without technical hitches
Isn't reliant on a server someplace holding my data.
Is probably way safer than the cloud or last pass.
That's an issue I've faced when for some reason I'm using the school computers, I usually just get out the iPhone and type it out copying off the iPhoneSounds silly but a question I have with iCloud Keychain...I have use a couple Macs, an iPad and iPhone. what if I use a PC or another person's computer...how do i know what password to log in with?
Thanks in advance
