I am thinking about using Keychain to store all my passwords, but am hesitant as I do not seem to fully understand how Keychain works.
I created a new keychain holding login credentials for some websites. Using Safari, I made use of the AutoFill feature, granting access to the keychain.
Now the credentials that have been used for AutoFill have been copied to a keychain called "Local Objects".
- What is this Local Objects keychain and why are my passwords copied into it?
- Why are they already entries in the keychain belonging to Apple (like com.apple.account.SMTP.asynchost) – is this related to Keychain being deeply integrated into macOS?
- Does this have any negative security implications, or: Should I care about this behavior?
