    How secure are my passwords, which automatically appear as I attempt to log in to various websites?

    And is the security in my keychain passwords only secured by my passcode?

    Thank you.

    That depends on your settings.

    When you use an iDevice with Touch ID, and enable Password Autofill in Settings - Touch ID & Passcode, you also have to use your fingerprint to fill in passwords automatically. It’s similar for devices with Face ID.

    Would my passwords be vulnerable to hackers?

    They would need your device and it’s passcode. As long as you don't tell anyone your passcode your passwords are safe.
