password not syncing to iphone

Questioner General

I have keychain syncing turned on for my iphone and my macbook pro. About 30 minutes ago I went to a new website and created an account on my MBP. Now I want to pull up that password on my iphone to login to the app for that website but the password is not there. If I go into safari I can search for it and see it just fine, but on the iphone it's not found in the passwords. I'm not sure what else hasn't synced but It looks like all my other passwords are there. Do I just need to wait a while for this to happen automatically? Is there any way to tell it to sync now?

Hi TheMicster,



We understand your iCloud Keychain isn't syncing. If you connect to a different Wi-Fi network, does the issue persist? If so, Let's try to delete the password from your iCloud Keychain, then sign back in to that account in Safari and save the password again. Check if this syncs to your iPhone now. Also, unlock all devices simultaneously and see if this allows data to start syncing.



Hope this helps!

Have a great day.

I disabled wifi on my phone and removed the password then signed in again in safari on my MBP. Then I locked and unlocked both at the same time. Still not syncing. Is there no way to tell iCloud Keychain to sync now? What else can I try?

I also tried tether through my iPhone as a different wifi, and removed and saved the password again. Still not syncing.
