ID Protection does a lackluster job of synchronizing the Vault

ID Protection does a lackluster job of synchronizing the Vault, specifically between devices such as my Windows 11 & my iOS 16 device.

This issue has been ongoing since my subscription started months ago.

Last night when I made a username+password credential and saved it, it did not synchronize properly and that login was lost, causing some inconvenience for all parties as I have to reach out to their support due to this.

Otherwise great product, superior quality for the value. Thank-you all and to whom ever it may concern for reviewing my Topic. I will try to keep tabs on any discussion here.
