When logging into a website it initially prompted me with the "save password" pop up which I clicked. The username and password are saved in AutoFill under Safari Settings but when I go to the website only the username appears. Before in iOS 7 it showed both for this same website, now I have to type it in every time. Why is it doing this?

I sometimes have this happen on certain websites too.

Once I click on the login box though I press the "autofill" button right above the keyboard and it does what it's supposed to.

But why did it always appear along w the username before?

When did they switch to this "auto fill" button instead of just filling the password in automatically?

Not sure why certain websites do this, wish I could give you a better answer :(

For most websites, for me probably around 90-95%, my keychain username/password automatically fills... but every now and then a certain website wants to be a troublemaker and requires me to press the autofill button.

If anything I would say it's an issue with the security settings of that specific website, not iCloud Keychain (since it almost always works perfect for me).

It has to be iOS, it worked fine on iOS 7.

Well, personally I'm on iOS 7 and still have always had that issue with certain websites.

Not saying iOS 8 didn't screw it up for you, just that there's always been a random website that does it for me even on iOS 7.
