2.11. How to use a single set of credentials for more than one app on the same iPhone

Sometimes you need to use a set of credentials from the KeyReel Password Vault in another app on the same iPhone. To do this, you can use KeyReel’s Secure Clipboard-sharing Feature and follow four simple steps:

  1. in the KeyReel Password Vault, manually create a website entry in advance using the name of the app (e.g. program_name.app) and enter each set of credentials;

  2. Under the “Keys” (keysButton) tab in the KeyReel Password Vault, select the site or application you want, or use the search function and open it.

  3. Click the appropriate set of credentials. The contents of those fields will be copied to the clipboard on the iPhone and at the same time to the clipboard of the connected Mac (using the encrypted Bluetooth connection between your iPhone and Mac).

  4. Go to the app on your phone and paste the data from the clipboard.

You can insert credentials to you local Mac App as well.

Note

Data in the clipboard will appear for only about 30 seconds before being erased.

When copying a set of credentials, the corresponding message appears at the top of the iPhone screen:
