Troubleshoot: JumpCloud Password Manager Paired Apps Aren’t Syncing


Personal items, folder items, permissions, or any changes applied on one JumpCloud Password Manager app are not syncing to other paired apps on different devices.


  1. First, restart the JumpCloud Password Manager apps on each of the paired devices.


On macOS devices, ensure to install and run the Password Manager app from the Applications folder. Do not run Password Manager from the installer wizard that appears when double-clicking the downloaded dmg file.

  1. Verify that the apps are up to date. To check for updates on the various devices, see Troubleshoot: Update the JumpCloud Password Manager App.
  2. Next, verify that there aren’t any potential networking issues on your devices or in your environment. Try switching to a mobile hotspot or turn on/off airplane mode.
  3. Make sure no firewall or networking rules are blocking Password Manager app traffic on one or all of the devices.
  4. On all paired apps, go to the JumpCloud Password Manager app settings and click the Synchronize button:
    • In the iOS app this is called Force sync.
    • In the Android app this is called Synchronize your data.
  5. If the issue persists, add a new item, or edit an existing item as this can help to trigger a sync.
  6. If the issue persists after adding or editing an item, unpair the impacted apps from the primary app that has the correct information. See Troubleshoot: Unpair The JumpCloud Password Manager App.
  7. Then pair the app that was just unpaired again to your working app.
