MacBook Air :: How To Reset Keychain Password


I updated my OS and now my MacBook Air is asking for a keychain password...a zillion times. It's unbearable. Does anyone know how to reset or setup the keychain password. It's obviously something different than my Apple Id.

OS X :: Login Keychain Password Reset?
How do I reset my "login" keychain password? I can't remember it. If it needs deleting, I don't have many passwords stored in that since I use Firefox most of the time and it doesn't store passwords in the keychain.

But when I use Safari it keeps asking for my login keychain password repeatedly.

Applications :: Safari Asking For A Password To Access The Keychain / Keychain Can't Be Found
Safari keeps giving me popup windows saying a keychain can't be found. It's only just started doing this but it's really annoying. Could it have anything to do with the fact I installed a new flash player? That's the only difference I can think of.Also on another computer it keeps asking for a password to access the keychain. It only does this on one user account though. Any assistance is gladly accepted!

Software :: Using Password For Standard User Account / Safari Is Asking For A Keychain Password
I'm working on a Mac-mini running OS X Tiger. I've got one admin account setup and 5 or so standard accounts. I'm configuring a connection to a shared folder on a network server on the standard accounts and I wanted to connect to that share using an account id that is DIFFERENT than the standard account id. I enter that id and the correct password and I check "save password in keychain" (or whatever that check box says) and I get prompted to enter the "keychain password" to unlock the keychain. The problem is, I never setup a keychain password for the standard user account. I'v tried the password for the administrator account (even though I can't specify the admin id anywhere) and I've tried the password for the standard user account, neither of which work.

However, I can still get successfully connected to the shared folder. I just don't want the user to have to enter the password each time they login.

Additionally, after going through this, Safari is now asking for a keychain password for the "login" keychain when it first starts up and loads the default Apple.com home page.

OS X Tiger :: Keychain, Password - Says Authentication Password Is Incorrect
Girlfriend's PC needed re-imaged, asked me for the password to her network. I go to keychain, click on her network, get asked for authentication password... and am told it is incorrect.
This is sudden. How can this be?

I am at my place, she is at hers. I shouldn't need to be on her network, should I? Doesn't make sense. All I wanted to do was view the password, but my MBP is telling me that my own authentication password is incorrect.

OS X :: How To Save Network Password - Saves The Password As A Keychain
so, i have gotten everything all set up and up and running but one thing that i have noticed is my network connection disconnecting itself. every time i have closed i the lid it has diconnected itself from the network. i realize that it goes to sleep when that happens and it shouldnt be really doing anything in sleep mode. but im kinda p-o'ed at how when i open it up i need to re enter the networs pass word. is there a way that i can make it so that it automatically connects to the network when its opened/turned on? i checked the box that "saves the password as a keychain" what ever that means too.

MacBook Aluminum :: Keychain Password Items Insecure?
I created a new keychain and added a new password item to it. The problem is that I can change the name and all other properties (excluding the password) of the password item without entering any password. This seems rather insecure to me. If someone manages to log in as me, or otherwise gets read/write access to my keychain, they may not be able to discover what my passwords are, but they could change the names of all my password items so that I don't know which is which. I looked around the settings for the keychain and for the password item, but couldn't find a way to secure it more.

MacBook Pro :: Constantly Asks For Keychain Login Password?
The other day, I managed to lock myself out of my Macbook & had to boot from the system disk to reset the password. That was successful, but now; many of my programs open a dialogue box asking for my "keychain login". They disappear after I click cancel a few times, but this is obnoxious.

OS X Leopard :: Master Password Won't Reset User Password
I'm locked out of my Macbook. I changed my user's password, then when I tried to log back into OSX it didn't recognise my new password. I tried my old password + some variations of the new password (incase I typo'd) by no luck. I know my master password, which the login prompt asks for after a few failed attempts so I can reset my user password. When I type in the master password it takes me to a screen getting me to reset my user password. So I type a new password, verify it in the second field, and click Log In. but the box shakes and I still can't get in. The new passwords definitely match, I've even tried really simple ones so there can be no error.

Mac Pro :: Reset The Password Without Knowing The Original Password?
My mother recently passed away and I've inherited her Mac Pro. She was the official "administrator" and no one knows her password. Is there any way to reset the password without knowing the original password? Or, is there a way to reset the whole laptop to factory settings? I'm not concerned about losing content from the laptop.

MacBook Air :: Laptop Keeps Asking For Keychain?
My MacAir laptop keeps asking for my keychain when I try to retrieve my mail.  I purposely kept a sticky note with the PW b/c it had done this before.  I used that saved PW and it rejects it!!  Consequently, I can't get my mail and I am getting very upset. I've read all of the online "fixes" about going to Applications, then Utilities, keychain access, deleting and trying again.

OS X :: Reset Login Keychain Without Losing Authorization For ITunes Purchased Music?
Does the login keychain have anything to do with the iTunes authorization required to play iTMS purchased music? If so, how do I reset the keychain without losing it?

The problem is that every so often the login keychain pops up asking me to enter a password. I've changed it and the keychain did not so they are out of sync. The only solution I've found was to delete the keychain. In 10.4.11 there doesn't appear to be any other way to sync the login password with the keychain password. Furthermore as I do not remember my old dotmac password nor my iTunes Music Store password, and as I no longer have access to either the Music Store nor dotmac, I worry that reseting the Keychain would lose access to all the music I've purchased throughout the years, and that's a lot of money spent for me to lose it.

The problems these brilliant people created are just so stupid I shutter to think what else they're messing up. I realize it's my fault for having to reset the password (even though it's a system bug in Mac OS X), but how do I resolve this problem?

MacBook :: Password Lost - How To Reset
I have brought Macbook A1181 from ebay it works fine but there were two accounts but I don't know the password and when I try to get back to the ebay seller he is closed he is account. Also I have read the Mac website that I need to use the Code: If you don't remember the password and automatic login is turned off, you can reset the administrator password using the Mac OS X User Install disc. Because a user with the Mac OS X install disc can gain unrestricted access to your computer, you should keep the disc in a safe place. To reset the administrator password using the Mac OS X disc:

1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc and restart the computer.
2. When you hear the startup tone, hold down the C key until you see the spinning gear.
3. When the Installer appears, choose Utilities > Reset Password.
4. Follow the onscreen instructions to change the password.
5. Quit the Installer and restart your computer while holding down the mouse button to eject the disc.
But didn't received any CDs from him so I don't know what version of CD I need it also I am new to macbook so its fully confusing please somebody help me how to reset my password.
