    Subject says it all. Most passwords on iPhone are still there but iMac "Wiped clean, by the wrath of God."...or Shiva...something.

    Not much to go on.... Have you checked your keychain data to see if your passwords are still there? Your iPhone syncs its passwords via iCloud using the keychain data. Which means if the passwords still show up okay on your iPhone, they must be syncing.

    Safari/Preferences/Passwords is wiped clean on iMac. iPhone still accesses all pw's. Apparently iMac isn't syncing with iCloud?

    That was it. iCloud became unchecked in Sys Pref's. Thanks for the nudge.

    Thanks for posting back. A good reminder to all of us about making sure we have iCloud activated so everything we need (passwords, Safari bookmarks, contacts, reminders, notes, etc) are syncing between all our devices.
