Those who use Apple’s iCloud Keychain for password management are getting a change in iOS 15.4 that will prevent the feature from saving passwords without an associated username.
The change will stop people from ending up with a Keychain full of orphaned passwords that don’t have a username attached to them, potentially making it difficult to figure out which password belongs to which account.
The change, which is currently live in iOS 15.4 beta 3 and will also be available to everyone at a later date, will also be copied by macOS 12.3 and iPadOS 15.4, too.
As 9to5Mac points out, the change is a relatively small one but it’s also one that will fix an issue that people have been dealing with for years now.
This is a small change, but one that addresses a major pain point with iCloud Keychain as it exists today. This change should make it far less likely that you end up with passwords that aren’t assigned to a user name. Not only does this further streamline the log in process, but it also makes it easier for users to create unique and strong passwords for each website they visit.

Apple hasn’t said when iOS 15.4 will be made available to the public, but beta 3 is now in the hands of developers as well as those who are part of the public beta program. A launch this spring seems likely.
