What's the difference between login and passwords? How do you know which one to enter your info into? Thanks

  • Hello @gmscarfino! 👋

    Login Items are meant to store your login credentials for sites and other apps. Anything that has both a username and password should be stored in a Login Item. Login Items should be used for most accounts.

    Password Items can be used to store a password for a service that doesn't have a username. For example, I use Signal Messenger and I use a Password Item to store the PIN code for Signal.

    Let me know if you have any questions. 🙂
