Advanced iCloud keychain

I have a similar problem on the menu ring to iCloud for iOS as well - I've posted here:

I have a similar problem on my Mac as well - which is the most recent Mac OS X El Capitan Version 10.11.4 (15E65).

Under system-> iCloud preferences, I am connected to my iCloud, but below the keychain, there is no button on the right side for 'Options' as iCloud drive or have Photos. See attached the screenshots below:

Can anyone help?

I called Apple and everything they suggested was this link: If you register your iCloud Security Code wrong too many times - Apple Support and wait 30 minutes to see if the buttons appear as if by magic, which clearly would not be, even after restarting my computer/iPhone/iPad.


According to this document, if there is no button in Keychain, this may mean that you have already activated two-factor authentication.

  • Can't get iCloud Keychain work after log you in and once again

    Hi I have a very frustrating experience - my AirDrop has stopped working and tried to fix one of the possible solutions is to disconnect from my iCloud on my Mac and iPhone. I did it, reconnected but when I tried to check my bunch of my iPhone, I couldn't! I asked to send me a message to my old phone number and I no longer use it and it is not an advanced option in IOS 9.2.1 to change the phone number and no option to do so since the Mac as well. So I'm in trouble and very frustrated!

    On the Mac, go into System Preferences/iCloud/Keychain/Options and change there.

    Try this from another thread I saw.

    On iOS, go to settings > iCloud > keychain and tap button to disable iCloud keychain. (you will be asked to delete or keep the passwords on device) I chose to delete...

    Then turn it back on, and pop - up chose reset iCloud trousseau, on a chosen pop-up confirmation reset

    In the new window pop up use iPhone password like iCloud cryptogram? has chosen the use code

    Enter your secret code (4 digits) then choose country and your new phone number

    Although, to "Restore the iCloud Keychain," I took to erase the data and essentially set up a new keychain.  Not the case.  Strangely, after essentially bypassing the security system, setting a new password and verification number, I see my cards, passwords and other data have been restored.  Maybe it's all the iCloud account and this master password.  Or maybe it's a bug.  With Apple, we'll never know.

  • Why iCloud Keychain does not contact ID to autofill info connection?

    This seems to be a painfully obvious question but there is no information about it anywhere. If I'm using my iPhone and I put my camera down unlocked or give to a friend to use, what is to stop someone from loading, say, my banks website and (I'm stupid enough to save my banking log in info to iCloud Keychain) and auto-fill just my journal saved information and access my bank accounts? This seems to be such blatant forgetfulness. Why is there not a "Touch ID Required" warning when selecting "fill automatic password" using safari?

    Send feedback to Apple. They will not respond, but at least know that there is a problem. If enough people send feedback, it can become the problem solved as soon as possible.

  • iCloud Keychain could not be set up with a valid entry

    I use iCloud Keychain for a while now, but last year I worked on a computer not apple. There was therefore no need to sync, so I ignored when he asked me to check my account for her information.

    So now I'm back to Mac and I want to synchronize my Wi - Fi passwords with my iPhone. I tried configuring iCloud Keychain (I know the security code and I have access to my phone), but it fails on both my Mac and iPhone. The data there are really outdated, so I decided to reset it and create a new keychain, but I found only the options for that when it is turned on.

    What do you think that the issue can be? And what can be the solution?


    -below are the error messages I get

    -J' tried to set up for weeks now, is not a server failure. Also different networks.

    -I know that the right security code, and I have access to the phone number, if I get the verification code too.

    If you cannot synchronize iCloud Keychain with other devices

    Make sure that your device is on a Wi - Fi or the cellular network. If the connection seems strong, try the following steps:

    1. Turn off iCloud Keychain on all devices.
    2. Turn on iCloud Keychain on the device that has the most up-to-date keychain items.
    3. Turn on iCloud Keychain on your other devices. They will be updated with your iCloud new keychain.

    If you no longer have your iCloud keychain items

    If you disabled iCloud Keychain on all your devices, your iCloud Keychain is removed from the Cloud. If you have chosen to remove the keychain of your devices when you have disabled iCloud Keychain, your iCloud Keychain is also removed from these devices.

    You will need to install iCloud keychain and add items again. Apple cannot recover your iCloud Keychain if you turn off iCloud Keychain on all your devices and choose to remove your iCloud Keychain locally on all your devices.

    On OS X, if you used Keychain Access to reset your OS X Keychain, OS X will delete your iCloud keychain items. Choose Keychain Access > S.o.s. keychain to verify and repair keychain settings and permissions. If this does not help, reconfigure iCloud keychain. If you need to reset your OS X Keychain again, temporarily disable iCloud Keychain in iCloud preferences before resetting your OS X Keychain.

  • Why as I get dialog boxes to enter my icloud Keychain password?

    When I restart or unsleep my Mac, I have a series of dialog boxes asking my icloud Keychain password. I agree that none of the applicants programs are. For example, now requires "accountsd" - what is that? I can't cancel either out of it.

    NB: I'm not a big cloud user, but I think that I logged in recently in it without the intention to use it for much. But I think that it is has triggered a chain reaction that I can't stop.

    Go to Finder and select your user folder. With this Finder window as the windshield, select Finder/display/display options for presenting or order - J.  When the display options opens, check "show the library folder. This should make your visible user library folder in your user folder.  Select the library. Place the following in the trash, then restart.

    Close all running applications. Put the following in the Trash:

    (1) in the folder ~/Library /, put the Caches folder to the trash.

    (2) in the ~/Library/Application Support / folder, put iCloud folder to the trash.

    (3) in the ~/Library/Preferences folder /, put the MobileMeAccounts.plist file in the trash.

    What happens if I have my Macbook factory reset and I do not have a backup time machine from my system?

  • iCloud security keychain and 2FA

    Bit of a long post, but I wanted to give general information on the question, I have experience. I guess than the TL. DR version would be "ICloud Keychain with 2FA active, uses is no longer the security key?

    After changing my Apple ID a few months ago who seem to go through unhindered after that I followed all the instructions, I therefore decided to improve authentication in two stages, to two-factor authentication last week.

    This also seems to be okay (off 2-Step, on 2FA), however, subsequently, the notification on my devices 2FA displayed my new Apple ID, but had rather my only old - an email address, I no longer have access to (and that Apple should technically not have same folder, because I removed all instances of it in my Apple ID account page).

    I managed to solve this problem by connecting to iCloud, iMessage, FaceTime, and iTunes Store on all my devices (one at a time), and logging then again.

    2FA notifications now display the correct current Apple ID on all my devices.

    However, during the process of logging in, the keychain part iCloud confuses me...

    I first disconnected my iPhone (iOS 9.3.1) and then again. During the process, asked me for my keychain security key, I have icloud. However, it asked me to enter the password of my iPhone device then said it was my new security key-iCloud. I'm not really who, like my keychain security was much longer and more complex than my iPhone password.

    When I did this process on my MBP (OSX 10.11.4), asked me to enter the password to my iPhone for iCloud keychain.

    Then on my iPad (also 9.3.1), I was asked to enter the password of my MBP to iCloud keychain!

    It was all very confusing, and I don't want my computer password uploaded to the cloud, encrypted or not.

    So, I wanted to go in iCloud keychain and re - activate the security key, but this option is no longer there. It is no longer an option to 'Manage' on OSX in iCloud Keychain, or any menu under "Advanced" in the Menu Settings Keychain iOS.

    I assumed that the source of confusion for me part is I didn't 2FA activated for about a week before I did the output/log in process, and advanced security key options were still there, so it is not clear to me that it's just because I 2FA enabled I can put is no longer a security key.

    Anyone can shed some light on this?

    I guess that these screenshots are relevant to you...
