    In iOS 8, there is no way to select which login to use (those who has multiple login accounts in a single website). iCloud Keychain autofills the last used login instead.

    I haven't seen a thread on this topic, though i've seen posts alluding to this same experience. I tested iOS 8.1 beta 1 briefly, and the experience seems to display the same characteristics.

    Can you start by typing the correct info and see if it offers up the rest of it?

    Yeah that's how it worked in iOS 7. But in iOS 8 i just doesn't work. Tried typing, even filling up the full username/email, but still no luck in filling in the password.

    This Apple support discussion also has the same problem: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6544732

    Is it currently working on your end with multiple logins?

    Truth be told, I only have email accounts that fit the bill and I use mail.app and not the browser. Let me give it a shot and ill report back.

    Nope. Works exactly how you described. I start to fill in other usernames and it throws in last used instead.

    Thanks for checking. Hope this bug gets more traction in coverage. While I don't have that much multiple accounts, like you email is in iOS Mail, it is a major set back in how iCloud Keychain is suppose to work. I've left feedback to Apple's feedback form but don't know what else I should do.

    Anyone else who depends on iCloud Keychain should probably let Apple know somehow and grow this thread.

    I wouldnt have known about it if not for this thread. I'm thinking most items like this have been relegated to a dedicated app for simplicity due to the retention of UN and PW info and the way an app can aggregate multiple sources as well. Most likely why it got missed.

    It does need to be addressed though.

    Just an update that this issue is still not fixed in 8.1 Beta 2.
