I have always relied on using an encrypted backup of my iPhone to preserve account passwords as part of the backup, so that these can be easily restored when I move to a new phone. But this feature relies on iTunes, which has been removed from Catalina.

How do I create an encrypted backup of my iPhone that preserves account passwords and and other data on Catalina, so that these can be restored when I get a new phone?

If you encrypt the backup, your account passwords and settings will be saved. In addition, your account preferences are usually automatically saved in your iCloud session . But, first do an iCloud Backup... for security reasons

  • The question is how to create a (local, "This Computer") encrypted backup that saves passwords on Catalina, given that it doesn't have iTunes (where this feature lives now). – orome Oct 11 '19 at 16:24
  • @orome This function is included in the option you have marked in the image of the question. If you encrypt the backup, your account passwords and settings will be saved. In addition, your account preferences are usually automatically saved in your icloud session – Raúl Sánchez Oct 11 '19 at 16:26

    @ankii So this feature exists in Catalina, and is now in Finder there? – orome Oct 11 '19 at 16:29
