    is Keychain secure?

    s it secure to use keychain?
    What happens if my device is stolen or lost and somebody sees a website
    with my login details. They can purchase anything or access my bank.
    The only way I can see this stopped if the device is wiped remotely or the lock screen is activated.
    Please advise if I am wrong

    It is always a good thing to lock your devices.

    Personally I'm inclined to distrust Keychain since banks recommend that you change PINs regularly...

    There's a limit to being lazy anyway! Efficiency dictates that good security relies on foresight and discipline.
