    Ive noticed recently that sometimes my passwords aren't saving across devices. For example, they show up on my iPhone, but I will get on my mac and go to the website and the password isn't set up. Some seem to be there while others aren't and it prompts me to save them on the mac. I have keychain on on both devices and under the same account. The only thing I can think of is that when I go into settings on my mac "Safari" isn't checked on the list of iCloud items. Keychain is obviously checked. Do i need to have safari checked too?

    I also looked and the passwords save on the Mac are different than on my iPhone and iPad.

    Three days ago I changed several website passwords, and I happened to be on my iPad at the time. I also edited Settings > Safari > Passwords to remove some old unused ones.

    Out of curiosity, I checked on my iPhone, and none of the changes had gone across, even after 15 minutes. So first I ran an iCloud backup of the iPad, then of the iPhone. Everything was in sync on both devices now... Except one website: seamless.com. I have no idea why, and I was forced to manually edit the password entry on my phone.
