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?

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
Yeah that's what's so weird. I had the option button on one of my macs now that I've signed out and signed back in I don't see the option button in so x iCloud settings or advanced on iOS

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.
