- I connected to an XFINITY wifi hotspot (SSID
xfinitywifi) roughly 2 hours ago on my iPhone 5S (iOS 7.1.2). These hotspots require no username or password (unencrypted), but do require authenticating with a Comcast username/password at the captive portal web page after connecting. (image below)
- I have iCloud Keychain enabled on my iPhone and on my MacBook Pro (OS X 10.9.4). The information for
xfinitywifiwas automatically copied to my MacBook Pro. (image below)
- I have Safari set not to remember usernames and passwords on either device (this is unrelated to wifi and my question below, but I thought it might potentially give clarity to some readers/answerers).
How (or perhaps where) does iCloud store this unsecured hotspot network information for syncing with other devices which have iCloud Keychain enabled, especially devices running OS X?
On encrypted networks, the information is stored in the Keychain Access app as an "AirPort network password" keychain entry. However, there is no entry for
xfinitywifi in Keychain Access. I even searched for various other related strings such as
comcast, etc. but found no relevant entries (see screenshot below).
