  • Patent number: 10635299
    Abstract: An electronic device detects a gesture input while displaying first content including a first hyperlink in a first window and a second window that includes second content. In response to detecting the gesture input, and in accordance with a determination that the gesture input corresponds to a first gesture type on the first hyperlink, the electronic device replaces display of the first content in the first window with display of third content that is associated with the first hyperlink. In response to detecting the gesture input, and in accordance with a determination that the gesture input corresponds to a second gesture type on the first hyperlink, the electronic device replaces display of the second content in the second window with display of the third content that is associated with the first hyperlink.

  • Publication number: 20190370457
    Abstract: In accordance with some embodiments, a method is performed at an electronic device with a display device and one or more input devices. The method includes displaying, via the display device, a user interface that includes a new-password field. The method includes detecting, via the one or more input devices, a user input that corresponds to selection of the new-password field. In response to detecting the user input that corresponds to selection of the new-password field, the method includes displaying, on the display device, a representation of a new automatically-generated password in the new-password field and displaying, on the display device, an affordance to accept the new automatically-generated password and an affordance to decline to use the new automatically-generated password.

  • Publication number: 20190372949
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to credential sharing for user authentication. In some embodiments, a first computing device maintains a credential manager that stores a plurality of user credentials usable to authenticate a user. The first computing device receives a request from the user to send one of the plurality of user credentials to a second computing device. In response to the request, the first computing device sends the user credential to the second computing device. The second computing device is configured to determine whether an application of the second computing device is presenting an authentication prompt to a user and, in response to determining that the authentication prompt is being presented, populate one or more fields of the authentication prompt with the user credential. In some embodiments, the second computing device is configured to store the user credential in a credential manager maintained by the second computing device.

  • Publication number: 20190370456
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to credential managers. In some embodiments, a computing device maintains a credential manager that stores, in a protected manner, a set of credentials for authenticating a user and metadata about the credentials. The computing device stores an instance of the metadata externally to the credential manager. The computing device uses the externally stored metadata to determine whether the set of credentials includes a particular credential associated with a service and, in response to determining that the set of credentials includes the particular credential, displays an indication of the particular credential. In some embodiments, the computing device receives a selection of the displayed indication by the user and, in response to the selection, sends a request for the particular credential to the credential manager.

  • Publication number: 20190372989
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to user authentication. In some embodiments, a first computing device receives, from a second computing device, a request for a user credential to be input into an authentication prompt associated with the second device. The first computing device determines a proximity associated with the second computing device based on a received wireless location beacon and, based on the request and the determined proximity, presents a selection prompt asking a user of the first computing device to select a user credential stored in the first computing device. The first computing device then provides the selected user credential to the second computing device to input into the authentication prompt. In some embodiments, the first computing device receives the wireless location beacon from a remote controller of the second computing device and determines a proximity based on a signal strength associated with the received location beacon.
