    "Massive iOS 8 flaw suggests parts of your password in autocomplete

    This could potentially be a significant problem for anyone who has installed iOS 8 on their device. iDownload Blog points us to a new report from iGen.fr that claims iOS 8’s QuickType smart keyboard feature will actually suggest parts of your password as part of its predictive typing feature......

    Download Blog recommends that anyone with iOS 8 turn off the QuickType predictive feature until Apple addresses the issue."

    That's not a bug. It's a new feature. You don't have to install password manger, you can use our QuickType autocomplete :)
