Dear experts:

Hi!

I got a couple of iMacs in my office recently. Everytime I opened Safari, it asked for keychain access password.
I found it irritating. I wonder whether there is a good way to resolve the problem.

Thanks!

G'day,

Go to

Applications > Utilities > Keychain Access

Double click the keychain utility

try this first

if not just reset your keychain

TO: Arthur:

Thank you so much for your kind tip.

I tried your tips, but it still keeps asking for keychain password.

I would like to stop the key chain asking for password.

The iMac in question is used by hundreds of domain users.


Thanks!

two other solutions

Go to Safari preferences and turn off "Other Forms" under the AutoFill tab. This seems to have fixed my popup problem here.

or

1) Quit Safari
2) Open Keychain Access. Find the "Safari AutoFill" item. Delete it.
3) Continue using Safari. Next time it asks for authorization, click "Always Allow". It won't ask again (at least, not unless you upgrade again).

Hope this works,

Cheers,

Arthur

This typically happens when the keychain password does not match the login password for the user account.  Try This:

1. Open Keychain Access
2. Click on Edit Menu
3. Select "Change Password for Keychain..."
4. Set the "New Password" to match the user account password.
