let accessControl = SecAccessControlCreateWithFlags(nil, .userPresence, [.privateKeyUsage, .applicationPassword, .devicePasscode])

keychain.accessibility(.whenUnlockedThisDeviceOnly, accessControl: accessControl)

Data Accessibility

You can set the data accessibility level according to your requirements using the `accessibility` method:

keychain.accessibility(.afterFirstUnlock)

Synchronization

To enable data synchronization across multiple devices, you can set the `synchronizable` property:

keychain.synchronizable = true
