Keychain Wrappers

So if you do anything with the iOS Keychain chances are you, like us, are using adapted GenericKeychain sample code no doubt; but there’s a number of other wrappers that we’ve noticed links to lately, some of these are no doubt worth checking out:

EMKeychain we mentioned before handles generic and internet keychain items.

Simple Secure Storage in iOS is focused on, well, securely storing dictionaries simply.

But if you just need really simple password storage, check out SFHFKeychainUtils as described at Password Management using the keychain by using SFHFKeychainUtils.

A nicely explained series of posts on the subject is

Simple iPhone Keychain Access

Keychain Group Access

Keychain duplicate item when adding password.

Particularly note the second one there about group access, which doesn’t appear to be explained as nicely anywhere else … at least, it certainly wasn’t anywhere we could find when we were sorting that out for the Poses series.


PDKeychainBindingsController “…to make using the Mac OSX and iOS Keychains as easy as NSUserDefaults.”

granoff / Lockbox : simple and ARC compatible

SwiftKeychainWrapper: “A simple wrapper for the iOS Keychain to allow you to use it in a similar fashion to User Defaults.”
