CodableKeychain is a Swift framework for saving objects conforming to the Codable protocol to the keychain.


  • iOS 8.0+, macOS 10.10+, tvOS 9.0+, watchOS 2.0+
  • 100% Test Coverage
  • Easily store any object conforming to Codable
  • Specify item accessibility using a Swift enum (see Keychain.AccessibleOption)
  • Converts the 35 documented keychain error codes into a Swift enum for easy error handling (see KeychainError)



The KeychainStorable protocol, which inherits from Codable, is used to define a model that can be stored using CodableKeychain.

Note: If you do not define a service or access group, CodableKeychain will default to your app's bundle identifier for the service and nil for the access group.

import CodableKeychain

enum Constants {
    static let service = "com.example.credentialservice"
    static let accessGroup = "[APP_ID_PREFIX].com.example.TestKeychain"

struct Credential: KeychainStorable {
    let email: String
    let password: String
    let pin: Int
    let dob: Date

extension Credential {

    var account: String { return email }
    var accessible: Keychain.AccessibleOption { return .whenPasscodeSetThisDeviceOnly }


Configuring Defaults

If the service and access group will be the same for all keychain operations, use the following to configure default values:

Keychain.configureDefaults(withService: Constants.service, accessGroup: Constants.accessGroup)

To reset the defaults:



let credential = Credential(email: "test@example.com", password: "foobar", pin: 1234, dob: Date(timeIntervalSince1970: 100000))
do {
    try Keychain.default.store(credential)
} catch let error {


do {
    let credential: Credential? = try Keychain.default.retrieveValue(forAccount: "test@example.com")
} catch let error {


Note: CodableKeychain requires Swift 4 (and Xcode 9) or greater.

Targets using CodableKeychain must support embedded Swift frameworks.


CocoaPods is a centralized dependency manager for Cocoa projects. To install CodableKeychain with CocoaPods:

  1. Make sure the latest version of CocoaPods is installed.

  2. Add CodableKeychain to your Podfile:


pod 'CodableKeychain', '~> 1.0.0'
  1. Run pod install.

Swift Package Manager

Swift Package Manager is Apple's official package manager for Swift frameworks. To install with Swift Package Manager:

  1. Add CodableKeychain to your Package.swift file:
import PackageDescription

let package = Package(
    name: "MyAppTarget",
    dependencies: [
        .Package(url: "https://github.com/toddkramer/CodableKeychain", majorVersion: 1, minor: 0)
  1. Run swift build.

  2. Generate Xcode project:

swift package generate-xcodeproj


Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager for Cocoa projects. To install CodableKeychain with Carthage:

  1. Make sure Carthage is installed.

  2. Add CodableKeychain to your Cartfile:

github "toddkramer/CodableKeychain" ~> 1.0.0
  1. Run carthage update and add the appropriate framework.
