Needed to reboot chrome and my PC, but after that it worked flawlessly.
Won't work. Keeps asking me to download icloud when it's already installed.
I guess this just doesn't work any more. I've uninstalled/re-installed, I've synced-unsynced, I've rebooted everything, I've deleted Bookmark backups out of iCloud, I've removed everything from Chrome, re-imported, unsynced Safari from iCloud on iPhone, etc. Bookmarks refuse to sync to iPhone. Guess I got to start using Chrome on iOS now. Don't want to have multiple browsers installed to my phone but here we are.
Please make this work for Mac! Its such a common scenario for folks to prefer Chrome on desktop while happily using Safari on mobile devices. The people want it Apple. Let them have it!
It is asking me to enter the two factor authentication code every time I start Chrome - super inconvenient and annoying!
Apple is the best even this. Its syncing good , its working fast and its can make to many thinks.
Doesn't work on Mac. WHY?!?!?!?! Apple can't create an app for their own platform, that's just pathetic.
It finally works! There is a minor inconvenience, where it doesn't recognize iCloud for Windows and iCloud for Windows doesn't recognize the extension, but after a restart the problem was cleared up. I have been able to save a bookmark on my phone and it was immediately available on my Windows machine. Love.It!
Does not work. "Download iCloud for Windows to use iCloud Bookmarks."
Has worked good for me for over a year
This extension successfully synced all my iPhone Safari bookmarks to Chrome the first time, but then doesn't seem to sync again when I make changes. It doesn't sync bookmarks I add in Chrome back to Safari on my iPhone either.
Same problem here... It still keep ask me to download the icloud in the extension....
iCloud bookmarks on Chrome Windows 11 do not work! I contacted apple for 5 hours on the phone, lastly, they told me that it is not their fault, and they won't fix it! They blame Microsoft Windows and Google Chrome. NEW EDIT ON OCTOBER 2022: Hey, Apple, please fix the iCloud store version on Windows 11 22H2. iCloud does not sync Google Chrome bookmarks or iCloud passwords. Your programs do not recognize each other; The bookmarks' extension keeps asking to download iCloud, and The application keeps asking to download the bookmarks' extension. The same for the iCloud password extension. This issue is not limited to me, it is affecting many other users as well. Please check the comment section on the Chrome extension website or any Apple forum or Reddit… I let the extension collect erros in google chrome this is the error the extension is receving: Unchecked runtime.lastError: Error when communicating with the native messaging host. Context background.html Stack Trace background.html:0 (anonymous function) EDIT: Today on 13.11.2022 they fixed chrome bookmarks extension. But their iCloud passwords app is crushing everytime I try to open it on windows 11 22h2. So apple please fix it I am using windows 11 22H2. everytime I try to open icloud passwords app it requires me windows hello pin code, I enter it. and boom it crushes and exits. EDIT: 21.11.2022 the bookmarks extensions is not showing any errors, But it is not syncing any bookmarks! So It is useless. Also iCloud Passwords still crashes every time i try to open it.
It just doesn't work. The components don't seem to recognise each other. I've tried many times.
Still not working as of 10/4/2022 when using the Windows Store version of iCloud. Hopefully Apple fixes this mess.
Does not work on macOS. Does not work with the latest iCloud/Chrome.
I've tried it on four machines so far. It doesn't work (though it appears to be iCloud Desktop's fault). The extension and the app don't recognize that each other exist.
Got locked at the "Sign into icloud to use icloud bookmarks." prompt. Can't find a way to work around it and there's no error message or something to point me in the right direction. Everything syncs fine, the extension just doesn't want to talk to the icloud app.
It does it's job, but the problem it that sometimes it copies bookmarks for no reason and there are no customization options. Should have bought an Android tablet instead.
Don't be fooled, this extension still works! You just need to download the Windows 7/8 version of the iCloud for Windows program and not the Windows Store version. The extension hasn't been updated in a long time and as such it doesn't know to look for the Windows Store version.
doesn't sync properly
Broken, doesn't work for me on Chrome, Firefox or Edge. I know it officially doesn't support Edge, but it should since it's basically Chrome now.
Keeps creating duplicate bookmarks, keeps pulling old folders and bookmarks and adding them back when they've been deleted. Used to work fine, for months, but the past few days it's wrecked havoc on all of my bookmarks, and deleted some that I cannot recover. Please fix it.
can u please design a verion for chrome on mac? Safari works really bad on macos but better than chrome on ios. Therefore I use chrome on mac and safari on ios, but there is no way to sync the bookmarks.
No longer works. 2022
It does not work anymore and it has no version of Edge browser based on chromium
Never works properly.. instead of doing a simple extension it needs the buggy icloud for windows then add the very bad implemented two factor authentication.. and voila.. 1 star
Broken plugin. Sync is very inconsistent. Seems to be now way to get it to manually sync beside toggling sync on and off in the iCloud for Windows settings. When I add a new bookmark to a folder my folder organization is shuffled to a seemingly random order. It's not alphabetical or most recent, they all just get jumbled and will get re-jumbled every time I try and manually reorder them. The only way to keep it from doing this is to never add a new bookmark.
Now for some reason, it has duplicate everything on every single lap or PC I have when it sued to work perfectly... not sure what the hell happened but no more, can't use it until it gets fixed otherwise I will spend eternity deleting everything
Not syncing properly... Creates endless duplicate bookmarks... Borderlining on completely useless...
There's a bug creating thousands of duplicate bookmarks, absolutely avoid it until there is an update.
I would give it zero... but I can't. It doesn't work. I don't think I need to add more. I wouldn't need the Chrome aspect if Safari loaded all of my essential pages - which it doesn't.
Completely wipes my carefully collected bookmarks that are critical to my business and finances. This has happened multiple times over the years. Apple, this is completely UNACCEPTABLE.
I added a bookmark in my safari browser, opened my Chrome, see it's there, my safari browser thinks I added a bookmark in Chrome, added another one. There goes the infinite loop. I ended up with thousands of same bookmarks in both safari and chrome. Good job whoever wrote this addson.
So far so good
Can't sync chrome and safari
Doesn't work. Every time i attempt to set it up, it tells me to download icloud for windows ( which i already have set up)
As others have pointed out, this is broken. I've spent several hours trying to fix it, including on the phone with Apple Support. In my case, iCloud for Chrome creates hundred of duplicated bookmarks. Sometimes it will pick one or two bookmarks and duplicate them hundreds of times. Sometimes it will pick hundreds of bookmarks and duplicate them once, ignoring folder nesting and location. The first case is easier to fix as a hundred copies of the same thing is easy to spot. However hundreds of different bookmarks randomly placed in your bookmark folder make it impossible to find anything and is MUCH harder to fix. This extension appears to have been abandoned by Apple.
doesn't sync properly. duplicates and won't organized
Yeah, I realized that a lot of what I have been dealing with is the same others have mentioned. One day my bookmarks just basically up and vanished from my folder organization system and now I have to re-organize them. It's such a pain as I have a PC, Mac, iPad, and iPhone. So it was initially useful for my computer to get bookmarks from across each direction. However, i'm going to have to disable this feature if it does this again.
iCloud desktop tells me to download the extension (but opens a blank webpage) and icloud bookmarks extension (which i already had added) tells me to download icloud desktop app smh
Doesn't work with MacOS...
It doesn't recognize that I have iCloud for Windows installed. iCloud for Windows tells me I need to install the extension, the extension tells me I need to install iCloud for Windows. Dumb.
It doesnt work as it was before anymore, my years of neatly organised bookmarks are a mess now thanks to this extension...
It doesn't sync my passwords from my iPhone to PC and vice versa... v2.1.2
This extension keeps telling me to download iCloud, then iCloud tells me to get the bookmark extension.. it's a constant loop
It was working before the new password manager update. Now, it's not! Firefox and Chrome both doesn't work! The only way to sync now is through Internet Explorer, which sucks because it sorts your bookmarks alphabetically! I did this on iTunes so I don't need to install both iCloud on Microsoft Store and this extension!
Do not use!! it has destroyed years worth of bookmarks on all my computers - i have lost everything!!!!
Import and export option please... makes us adding passwords to iPhone
DO NOT INSTALL. Removed all my bookmarks from Chrome, Edge and Safari on iOS. No warning. What a garbage extension.
No longer works the way it should. Recently got a new PC. Downloaded iCloud to my desktop. When you have iCloud open, you can check off what things you want to sync. But when I tried to sync my Chrome bookmarks, I got a message saying I needed to enable the iCloud bookmarks extension. ok. Do that, but when I click on the iCloud bookmarks settings on my Chrome browser, it says I need to download iCloud to my computer??? It makes no sense. So basically, iCloud on my PC doesn't recognize that I have the browser extension enabled, and the iCloud bookmarks extension thinks I don't have iCloud on my computer. So it's completely useless. The bizarre thing is, is that everything is working as it should on my old PC. So I'm not sure why it's doing this.
Absolutely Trash! The way it's described is that you'd keep your Chrome Bookmarks updated to mirror the Bookmarks on iOS, yet it's the exact opposite. The extension gives no warning nor a verification pop-up of any sort to indicate what it's about to do, which is delete all the bookmarks and favorites on your iPhone/iPad and replace them with the ones you've got stored in Chrome. Deleted all of my Bookmarks and Favorites versus just putting them in a separate folder, or better yet...It could have added everything from Chrome to a seperate folder on iOS, essentially just adding the Desktop Bookmarks to what was already there on iOS... Absolutely astounding that Apple can't specify anything in these situations.
it does not work.
REMOVED EVERY BOOKMARK, DO NOT INSTALL!
This extension has caused a lot of problems. It has created duplicate bookmarks and other bookmarks have disappeared leaving empty folders. Some bookmarks have been removed from their folders and placed elsewhere. Some folders have also been converted to bookmarks using a URL taken at random from another bookmark. It has created a mess which is going to take ages to sort out
Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesnt. This has caused me so much grief. I would recommend using only Win/Android or only Mac/iOS. This was not worth it - it just doesnt work, like magic.
Do not use this extension! it will duplicate alll your bookmarks! I ended up with 3277 duplicate bookmarks. Extension doesn't work.
It worked with the regular non-Windows Store version of the app but not the Windows Store version. The reason why I rated it this way is because the Windows Store version is the only officially supported method for Windows 10, yet it doesn't work.
What is the point in blocking it from working on Linux, chromeOS and macOS? It won't force me to use Safari on mac, it will just make me NOT USE Safari ion iOS.
Can't sync chrome and safari on mac
stupid Apple, all this extension does is put a button to download icloud app on Windows
ruined everything now my bookmarks all overlap and make no sense at all and i cant undo it im so mad right now why would it not just add a simple folder icloud bookmarks not just combine them at random all my favorites are messed half don't even show up now on my phone and on my pc there all out of order this was the worst mistake I've made in years DO NOT BOTHER WITH THIS ITS GOING TO MAKE EVERYTHING WORSE
Doesnt work, cant believe this is Apple and Microsoft...
This feature causes my disk activity to go up to 100% for hours. I figured out it was this extension through Windows Task Manager and turned it off through Chrome Extensions. After I turned it off, I am now seeing Explorer windows every minute or so for my phone storage, so I suppose I will need to uninstall it entirely. A really bad fail from Apple.
Terrible. Doesn't work. Doesn't even show up. Typical Apple mumbo jumbo that accomplishes nothing.
Great idea in concept but what about Chrome users on Macs??? To lock this down to windows users only is ridiculous.
Issues syncing. Seems it doesn't work at all. After it created many duplicates of tabs I deactivated it.
Ive now got about 4000 bookmarks and counting with a mass duplication bug with no way to remove them from iCloud so my iPhone is a hot mess! Argggggggg dont download!!
i find it useless. I downloaded it, but it does nothing. Every time I open it it asks me to download it even though it hs alrady been downloaded. It has zero value and is a wasteof time.
Download this app if you need your bookmarks to triple in quantity and not let you delete the excess as it automatically re-adds the ones that you delete. Oh esp if you don;t want it to sync with your other devices, which it does well at not doing as well. The only way to delete the excess bookmarks is to delete this extension. Done!
Doesn't work. Just keeps saying to enable it even though it is already connected.
"Syncs" but it mangles all of my bookmarks.Then I have to redo ALL of my bookmarks, and it breaks them all again the next time I open Edge/Chrome.
Would be great if we could send browser tabs using this extension, not having to rely on 3rd party services. I'm not installing Chrome on my iPhone.
Worked on first install but hasn't worked since.
This extension is terrible. It started synching right away and pulled bookmarks from an old bookmarks file somewhere on my pc (I have no idea where) and added like 500 old bookmarks that I had deleted over the last year to both chrome and safari. I delete them and they just come right back. I Had to uninstall and spend 2 hours cleaning up my bookmarks on my desktop. Deleting them from chrome doesn't work because they just get added back from Safari and of course there is no windows version of Safari, so I get to edit all my Safari bookmarks on my iPhone. Do you have any idea what it's like editing 500 bookmarks on a screen that small? It sucks. This extension is trash and it should be removed from the webstore.
Wasn't working for quite a while but just started working again..... now though I keep getting loads of duplicate bookmarks appearing. Very annoying! I really wish this would just work.
My iphone the bookmarks with latest IOS, stop sync with Chrome bookmarks, please assist
Request Entity Too Large The requested resource /kb/index does not allow request data with GET requests, or the amount of data provided in the request exceeds the capacity limit. simply doesn't work anymore
I believe its no longer working, it kept asking me to download.
Whew! I downloaded before reading the reviews, something I've NEVER done before. (I was in a hurry). Then, right before I enabled it, I started reading.. OMG! uninstalled quickly! I just got all those thousands of bookmarks straightened out, took months it seems like. I don't need anything with even a 1% chance of screwing those up again... thanks guys! (and gals!)
Can't even install it on my Mac...
It simply doesn't work and never even starts. I installed 'iCloud for Windows' and it asked me to install 'icloud bookmark' to sync my chrome bookmarks. I found it and installed it to my chrome but after it installed, it says 'Download iCloud for Windows to use iCloud Bookmarks.' What a good circle!
Apple you're killing me. I so badly want to remain a fan of all things Apple, but you make it so hard by locking us in your bubble. I have 6 Apple devices and 1 PC, can you just make it so my PC is not some foreign creature. I just want it to sync to iCloud like all my other devices. Bookmark extension = broken for Chrome, iClouds Photos for windows = awful interface, no albums display at what so ever, just a mess of thousands of pictures in one folder with no sort of organization? Its like you want people to hate Apple. Just keep make good products and people will keep buying them, but force us to choose between Apple or not Apple.
not working any more
it is useful and handy, just a mouse click away thanks
Still is broken as of Friday, august 7th, 2020. what a shame
Works flawlessly. Currently syncing bookmarks between Chrome, Firefox and iOS without any problems whatsoever, and they sync instantly.
Unfortunately I can't even get bookmark syncing to work with Chrome unless I'm doing something really wrong. It's enabled in the iCloud Windows client but then the Chrome extension just puts me in a loop saying I need to log in to the iCloud client and back and forth. Syncing bookmarks is the primary reason I installed this extension and just wished the basic functionality would work.
sucks runs you in circles.
This extension causes an infinite loop of duplicate bookmarks! If you use multiple computers like I do and have Chrome running on more than one computer, this extension will cause an infinite loop of duplicate bookmarks appearing in all browsers including Chrome and Safari. I proved that it is caused by this extension by disabling it, and the duplicate bookmark problem went away.
I have tried multiple fixes to get this extension to do the job that it used to do until a few months ago and have had no success. After trawling through so many sites and forums and attempting so many suggested fixes I have to agree with many other reviewers that this extension is rubbish.
Its great. Always syncs my bookmarks in real time. Keep up the good work apple.
Doesn't work, I have it in chrome but iCloud in windows still asks me to download it and enable it, I do and then it asks me to download iCloud from windows store - I already have iCloud!
It Doesnt work anymore.
Out of 50 reviews, I think I've counted 4 positives ones. REALLY !! I guess I'll have to find out for myself but it's not feeling very hopeful right now. I'm thinking "what have I done, I hope you's are all wrong!'
duplicates 1000X my bookmarks no idea how to delete them all on iphone
Awful garbage. Completely destroyed my bookmarks, created duplicates, change the bookmarks bar completely. Buggy garbage shame.
I just want to organize the files in icloud storage. My iphone keeps telling me it's full but Apple doesn't offer anyway to get in to it and manage it. Apple is an absolutely rubbish Company. Trying to install an App to manage it from Microsoft and it suggests installing another App and Another and Another. Where will it end.
It just fails to sync. It has worked at the beginning, now no device including the iOS ones is getting the new updates. A big disappointment with Apple!
Only works with IE, Firefox and Chrome (ie other browsers, even chromium based ones like Brave, though they can install the extension, icloud for windows won't share to them) It did pull my safari bookmarks into chrome, not sure how well it will sync over time, but based on other reviews i won't get my hopes up. Apple software support on windows isn't great. (same goes for Google software on ios/mac)
Has never worked properly since day one. The only thing this extension does reliably is completely destroy your bookmarks on both Safari and on Chrome by creating hundreds of duplicate entries and adding folders you never added. I have tried to use this extension many times and have managed to get it to work reliably for periods of time but it isn't worth the many times that I have consequently lost all my bookmarks.
It does work and works great in fact. But one major issue with it is that it removes all the icons and so I cant tell what any tab is anymore at a glance. If they could rectify that Ill give it a high score.
Utterly useless. Like many others have reported, it loves to constantly re-arrange and duplicate my bookamrks. I cleared them all, re-imported them, and it did the same again. Stay clear ans ave yourself the time.
You noted that this extension works with GNU/Linux, but why it's impossible? When I launch the app, I'll get the notification that this app is not compatible with my platform.
