The iCloud Keychain is a highly useful feature in your iOS devices such as iPads and iPhones. iCloud Keychain allows you to save passwords as well as other valuable information such as credit cards on all of your approved iOS devices. As different websites and online platforms require you to have a login password and other credentials, it is necessary to remember them when accessing the account the next time. This is where the iCloud Keychain feature in your iPad will benefit you.
iCloud Keychain acts as one place for securely storing all your login information and other credentials. This will allow you to quickly navigate the sites and fill up the login details quickly without the need to type them every time. This is why it is recommended to set up the iCloud Keychain right after you have purchased a new iPad from any of the Apple tablets wholesale stores. Below is how to setup and configure iCloud Keychain on your iPad.
Setting up iCloud Keychain

- Select iCloud, navigate down the page until you see a Keychain option, and toggle it to the On
- Enter your Apple ID and password if promoted to enable the iCloud Keychain on your iPad.
You will need to enter the existing password if you have created an iCloud Keychain password previously. If not, you must create a new password on the subsequent page.
Configuring iCloud Keychain
After the iCloud Keychain is activated, the first step is to configure it according to your preferences. Open the Advanced tab to configure the settings for iCloud Keychain. One option that you can enable is whether to use a iCloud security code for setting up iCloud keychain on other devices. The security code of your iCloud keychain can also be changed easily. Yet for that, it will require you to enter your Apple ID and password.
You can select whether to create a randomly generated security code or a complex security code by tapping on the Advanced Security Options. You can also configure iCloud keychain so that you can receive a text message for the verification of your identity while using the iCloud security code. This can either be your own phone number or from your family or friends that you trust.
