If you choose to use iCloud Keychain as your personal password and credit card manager, you can opt-out from uploading the encrypted data to Apple’s servers with an inconspicuous workaround we found which we describe below.
To keep the information stored in Keychain offline, tap through Advanced Options > Don’t Create Security Code > Skip Code.
In order to test the new Keychain feature, we opted for using an iCloud Security Code instead which means our saved-password data was automatically uploaded to the cloud. You can change the iCloud Keychain Security Code or verification phone number at any time by navigating to Settings > iCloud > Account > Keychain.
If you haven’t already set the Safari AutoFill options, tap through Settings > Safari > Passwords & AutoFill and enable the options you need.
After enabling the “Names and Passwords” option, Safari will offer to save newly-entered passwords to iCloud Keychain. The next time you try to log in to the same website, Safari will automatically fill in the username and password fields with the saved data. An interesting new feature which comes exclusively with iCloud Keychain is the ability to automatically generate passwords. Saving credit cards in Safari is easy and with iCloud Keychain, the card data becomes instantly available across authorized devices. When entering credit-card data, notice that you are not asked for your card security code (the three-digit CSC number appearing at the back of the card). The verdict: iCloud Keychain takes away the burden of having to manually enter passwords and other personal information online and across multiple iDevices.

A newly discovered bug in iOS 7 allows attackers to disable the Find My iPhone feature without entering a password. Entering a random password into the password field, backing out, and then changing the description of the iCloud account will allow an attacker to disable the Find My iPhone feature. In order to protect yourself against this type of attack, be sure to enable Touch ID if you have an iPhone 5s or to enable a Passcode if you don't. To access your saved passwords, navigate to Settings > Safari > Passwords & AutoFill > Saved Passwords. Each time you set up a website account, Safari will offer to create a secure password and save it to your iCloud Keychain. To add a credit card to the database, navigate to Settings > Safari > Passwords & AutoFill > Saved Credit Cards. If you are using another browser app such as Google’s Chrome, you won’t be able to autofill saved Keychain password or credit-card data.

The way the exploit works is by going into the settings to attempt and change someone's iCloud credentials. Furthermore, the exploit allows the complete removal of an iCloud account on the device as well. Since an attacker won't be able to access your settings without your Touch ID or Passcode, you will be safe from the attack. Perhaps Apple is already aware of the flaw and is working to patch it in an upcoming update.

This includes to personalise ads, to provide social media features and to analyse our traffic. Keychain also allows you to generate unique and secure passwords when creating website accounts. The cell phone number is required in case you need to verify your identity when using Keychain on other devices. This means someone could theoretically unlink your phone with your iCloud account without knowing your password.
We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners.
The code acts as your password which you can use to grant access to Keychain across multiple devices. You can then set up iCloud Keychain on additional devices by approving them from the original iPhone.
If your life depends on your password data it is probably not the best idea to upload the iCloud Keychain information to Apple’s servers. However, creating a Security Code will automatically upload your personal Keychain password and credit card information (albeit encrypted) to Apple’s servers.
