Hi,

I use safari to make password and so, they are suppose to sync between my MacBook and iPhone, but they don't. I am signed in on both with my Apple ID but no sync. Does anyone has the same problem and a solution? This also happened on iOS 11. On my MacBook I have high sierra,

Anytime I see something like this, I would try to turn off iCloud sync for the particular item, and then turn back on.

In this case, I'd probably turn iOS off first, then desktop. Then reverse the process.

Thanks for the tip. You mean sing out of iCloud on my phone first and then sign out of iCloud on my MacBook? I try it when I get hoe this afternoon. Thanks for the tip

Correct.

But, in most cases, no need to completely sign-out of iCloud, just turn off the Keychain sync option. If that doesn't work, can then try completely signing out of iCloud (the nuclear option) and re-signing in.
