Think OTP

It's probably a time-based one-time password setup. Could be anything from a SecurID-style token to the TOTP apps like Google Authenticator. Apple would hold the token, and give them the valid login code for the next X hours.

Re: The LAST place I'd store my passwords

Across Linux (me) and Windows (SWMBO), we've switched to KeePassXC, which is compatible with the KeePass databases, but the UI is better, and it's being actively maintained. Nice if you don't want to use KeePass with its .Net (or Mono) dependencies, and KeePassX hasn't been maintained for a while now. XC also has FF & Chrome plugins to fill in passwords (and I know they work on Linux, which most of the other KeePass variants don't do, or don't do well).
