    Hi all,

    Since updating to High Sierra, I've had some massive problem with my Keychain/iCloud keychain
    My iCloud Keychain is still intact, and I can see or use it without any problems on my iPhone and iPad. However, on my mac, 95% of my passwords/logins have disappeared. This was previously fully populated and was syncing with iCloud keychain.

    Even if I go to System Preference > iCloud and check "keychain," my mac keychain doesn't update.
    I also lost all my password/logins for Outlook, but I'm sure I can retrieve them somehow.

    If anyone can assist me in getting my iCould Keychain PWs on to my Mac Keychain, I'd be very grateful.

    Thanks.

    Nooooo!!! That would be the death of me!
    Surely this must be rectifiable?
