  • Now, restart your computer -> Hit the Start menu -> Power icon -> Restart.
  • After that, re-enable the Safari bookmarks syncing in the iCloud app.

3. Make Sure You Have Enabled iCloud for Safari on Your Mac or iPhone/iPad

  • On your Mac: Head into the System Settings app -> Apple ID banner -> iCloud -> Show More Apps -> Make sure that the switch for Safari is turned on.
  • On your iPhone/iPad: Navigate to the Settings app -> Apple ID banner -> iCloud -> Show All -> Be sure that the switch next to Safari is enabled.
