    Hello,

    Just downloaded the two apps, and don't often post in forums so please be patient. (Any advice is always welcome)

    Just wondering if I'm missing something or if this is just how it is...

    I have iCloud Keychain enabled and on my iMac running Mavericks it seems to work well enough. It never worked on my iPhone though, then realized I had to run Safari without the "Private" feature. So I turned that off and that prompted a new text over the keyboard for autofill. However, the page would just reload over and over...I'm thinking this is because I have cookies turned off. Ok, fine...

    So I sign up to iMore on my Mac and use keychain to fill in a password, easy peasy...but then whoops! Now that I have the iMore app, I can't sign in, why? Because I can't remember the long string of letters and numbers iCloud used for my password. Now I'm stuck, so I go back to my computer and change the password to an easy to remember one.

    Dies this make sense? It seams overly complicated to me, the Keychain iCloud thing seams like a great idea, but so far it's been a mess for me and doesn't work on my phone at all, and isn't that the point?

    Thanks.

    It only works seamlessly in Safari on the Mac or iPhone not in other apps.

    To find a password in the iPhone to copy and use in an app, go to Settings, Safari, Passwords & Autofill, Saved Passwords, and then find the website in the list of passwords. Select it, enter your iCloud Keychain password and then you should see the login info for that site and be able to copy the password to use in an app.

    Thanks. It's been far from seamless for me. But at least I know that it's strictly for safari.
