Hello,

 

I restored one of my Mac using Time Machine today, then I noticed that first my iCloud account is duplicate in Contacts, then I noticed that when removing an Internet Account, it asks me that it will remove my account from this Mac as well as my 2 other Macs, which one of them is the same Mac that I am using (again, duplicate).

 

For Contacts, I solved it by going to Internet Accounts then turned off iCloud, the on again. I tried that for Keychain, then added and removed an Internet Account, but it didn't remove the duplication for my Mac. Also, I went to Find My iPhone on iCloud.com, but I didn't find there is a duplicate Mac. I even tried to disable Find My iPhone from my Mac, but this didn't remove the duplication.

 

Anyone can tell me if there is a way to managed deveices associated with iCloud, particularly iCloud Keychain?

 

Thank you


MacBook, OS X Mavericks (10.9), Mid 2010, 8GB RAM

    I've been looking for a while and I could not find anything selective.

     

    I just found a support document http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4644 that says :

     

    [...] you can completely reset iCloud Keychain on the device in order to complete setup.

    • Devices using iOS 7.0.3 or later:
      • Tap Settings > iCloud > Keychain.
      • Tap “Approve with Security Code”.
      • When asked to enter your iCloud Security Code, tap "Forgot Code?"
      • In the next dialog that opens, tap Reset iCloud Keychain. Doing this will replace your iCloud Keychain in the cloud with your iCloud Keychain items on your device.
      • Tap Reset to confirm. Note that you will be asked to create a new iCloud Security Code.
    • Macs using OS X Mavericks v10.9 or later:
      • Choose Apple () menu > System Preferences. Click iCloud, then select Keychain.
      • When asked to enter your iCloud Security Code, click "Forgot Code?".
      • In the next dialog that opens, click Reset Keychain. Doing this will replace your iCloud Keychain in the cloud with your iCloud Keychain items on your Mac.
      • Click Reset to confirm. Note that you will be asked to create a new iCloud Security Code.

     

    I haven't tried it myself, but from a post I read it looks like it should destroy all copies of iCloud Keychain and reinitialize it from the device you are executing this operation.

     

    Hope it solves the problem

    Hello,

     

    I tried this, it didn't help.

     

    I have another (newer) thread here: https://discussions.apple.com/message/23646132#23646132

    any updates on this? I'm also having duplicates with my Mac mini and it's starting to bug me.
