    Is this a news? I've never seen this popup before... why it isn't in any app?

    Thanks!

    Flipboard has access to iCloud keychain as well. Cool feature.

    I think Apple announced this iCloud Keychain feature in iOS 8, which allows developers to use your saved ID and passwords directly in apps (as opposed to just browsers). For some unknown reason, virtually no one has implemented it at all, and I think most have forgotten that it even exists.

    As said, it has been around since iOS 8 and most apps don't use it which sucks.

    Wow, really since iOS 8? In the previous release of imgur I'm sure it wasn't there! Yes, it's a great feature, can't understand why the developers don't use it :confused:

    There are more mainstream developers that use the 1Password inline extension than Keychain Access on iOS. But at least 1Password is also really good.

    A lot of apps do carry the login email over but not full access. Yes it's annoying.
