    There doesn't seem to be a way to delete saved passwords from the iCloud Keychain in Yosemite. If I choose Safari>Preferences from the menubar, then click on the Passwords tab in the panel, I see the saved passwords. With previous versions of OS X, I could select a password and delete it (or all of them if I wished). That doesn't seem to work, at least for me, in Yosemite PB4.

    Anyone else?

    Option is still there for me on GM release--both remove if I select one or remove all if I don't select any specific password.

    It doesn't work for me, either. I hit Remove but the item isn't deleted.

    Works for me (PB4). I just click remove (well, I actually press the backspace key) and it deletes fine.

    Can you delete them directly from the keychain? Open Keychain Access, search for the password, delete it.

    Same issue. I can't seem to erase the saved passwords in iOS 8.1 either

    Applications > Utilities > keychain access

    Select ICloud from the top left, then select passwords from the bottom left.

    These are the passwords that are stored in your keychain.

    Yeah, I think most of us all know how to use Keychain from OSX to do it. I am just pointing out the things that stopped working in iOS 8.1 and Yosemite.

    Delete Passwords in keychain Access

    The only way it works is to use the "delete" key on your keyboard.
    Right click entry > choosing delete DOES NOT WORK
    Using the dropdown menu to delete DOES NOT WORK

    You highlight the entry and use the "Delete " key on your keyboard

    Keychain > Select iCloud from the top left, then select passwords from the bottom left > left click on entry to highlight the entry > Use "Delete" key on keyboard
