    Hey everyone, I've been told there is supposed to be an advanced tab under iCloud Keychain settings. I am on iOS 9.3.2 and I don't see the option on my iPad mini 2 or iPhone 6 Plus. I have logged out and back into both devices and restarted them. What am I missing?

    Did you add your phone number to your Keychain when you set it up if not that might have something to do with it

    Go to settings iCloud and on the right-hand side go to options on keychain and you will see it see all of the information there

    Do you happen to have 2 factor authentication enabled?

    I was also looking for those settings a few weeks ago. It seems that turning on 2FA removes that advanced setting completely.

    I just turn 2 fac off through appleid.apple.com and after logging out of iCloud and logging back in on my iPad i was able approve the device on my iPhone or reset the iCloud keychain. After approving it the advanced option appeared! So i guess you can't use 2 fac with it.

    I'm also having this issue; my iCloud keychain isn't syncing correctly and I have no advanced options. Why in the heck would having 2-factor enabled get rid of these options? It's silly to have to disable 2-factor (and thus reduce the security of your account) in order to fix your iCloud keychain.

    Is there any other way to reset your iCloud keychain without turning off 2-factor? This is a bit absurd.
