Each time I open Safari on my MacBook Pro, a window appears asking me to enter my Login password. I do this, and everything works fine. But I do not understand why Safari asks me to enter my Login password. How do I turn this "feature" off?
I keep getting an iCloud Password popup asking me to enter my password. Entering the password and hitting login causes the popup to go away and immediately reopen. Hitting cancel does the same thing. How do I make this popup go away?
My girlfriends Macbook has this popup about every 2-3 minutes while youre browsing the web. She doesnt remember ever setting a "keychain" password, and tried to type in the password that she uses to log into her macbook, but apparently it's not the same password. What can I do to get rid of this if she doesn't know the password? Can I delete and then reinstall Safari? Do I need to reformat and install the entire OSX? Should I just use Firefox and forget about Safari?
I am trying to uninstall Virex 7.5. I have got the Terminal uninstall command which opens Terminal. So far, so good. However, Terminal is asking me for my admin password but it's not allowing me to enter it. The cursor is not blinking it's just a solid black oblong - just bl**dy sitting there! Absolutely no response to any key except the enter key - then terminal helpfully says, 'Sorry, try again' What's going on? I just wanna get rid of Virex!!!
Yes I know other people have posted this and gotten the answer that you just put it ion anyways and you wont see it come up but it works. Well I do not actually have a password set so usually I just hit enter with it blank but when I do that in Terminal it says sorry wrong password or something until I hit the 3rd try and it boots me.
my enter button won't work as I'm trying to login. I don't have a password so normally I'd just press the enter button and login right away. But yesterday, I tried pressing enter and nothing happens. I'm certain that the enter key isn't malfunctioning because it's a brand new computer.
Everytime I sign facebook, it is keep delay delay and can't enter the front page. I check up cookies, try facebook widget, and trying to solve and nothing happen yet. It is strange that mobile facebook works. I prefer laptop. I only have mac 10.3.9 and using safari and firefox.
Hi! Im new to the forums but i really need help with something and i was hoping someone here could help me out. So I just installed Tech Tool Deluxe onto my macbook and then shut it down later. I went back to use it again and when i turned it on a login screen appeared asking me to put in my password. I did that and the screen turned blue (looking like it was loading) and then went back to the login screen. Every time i put in my password it just takes me back to the login screen. I have had my mac for a while and i dont want my hardrive to get wiped out so what do i do? Thank you for looking
I trying to figure out why my macbook pro running tiger has started logging me out immediately after I log in, and what I can do to fix this.I am correctly entering the password (just in case you thought I didn't know the password) as it accepts it and logs in, starts to change the desktop background and then just as the Finder bar appears I am logged out and send straight back to the main login box. It does this for the main User (admin) account. I have tried booting in safe mode and this does the same thing. The Guest login does work however.
If I log off, put the computer to sleep, or restart, I have to access network preferences and enter the password before the internet will work. Yes I'm checking the box that says "remember password in keychain". What gives?
Every 10 minutes I get a pop up window that reads, "To synchronize your keychain on this computer, enter the password for your user account on..." then it says the name of my macbook pro. My problem is that I type in the password but another window comes up rejecting it, claiming my password is incorrect....which isn't true.
Just did "Archive & Install" and when I am trying to move my OLD documents to the new locations, I get a Password dialog box, and it will only move/copy/trash them once I enter my password. I have tried resetting "Everyone: No Access" and "<myusername>:read&write" from CMD+I for all relevant files and folders, but it still does this. This is pertinent to stuff such as ~/Documents ~/Pictures etc, (NOT ~/Library by the way).
Is it necessary to enter my iTunes password every single time I open iTunes? I understand the importance of entering the password if I'm browsing the store, but if I'm just playing around with my own library or ipod, why must I enter my password?
I have a 1GHz, 12inch powerbook running OSX 13.9 and I have a problem where my airport connection wont allow me to connect to my wireless router.
I can see the connection in my airport but the 'OK' button in the dialogue box to enter the password is greyed out—reminds me of a criticism Steve Wozniak has of OSX where options in the GUI are greyed out but without any explanation of why, which gives you no chance of solving the problem or accessing the option. How frustrating.
The wireless connection had been working fine, but what would happen is once a week or so this problem would happen. Unplugging the router and plugging it back in would fix the problem. But that has failed to fix it over the last couple of days.
The wireless security is WPA personal, the router is a Belkin and the broadband modem is a Dynalink if that helps at all.
(please excuse the use of my, instead of me in the threads topic - ha)
Safari will not allow me to enter websites with 1 passwords. When I input the password it reverts back to enter you password. I have updated to all of the newest versions and Safari is still not working. I am having no issues with Firefox.
I am having a problem with getting on the internet through my wireless modem using my MacBook--it's an older laptop: OSX 10.5.8-- without entering the WEP password each time. I have checked the box for the coputer to remember the password, but it's not working. I was able to seamlessly go onto the internet in the past--then this started happening-
Trying to figure out why it is that I have to constantly enter my password for my Mail accounts when sending and receiving. It's not consistent. All passwords are part of my keychain so I don't get it.
The first time I put in my password the screen turns gray for about a minute, and then I have to put in my password again but then it turns off, I have to push the start bottom again and then I am allow to put in my password and log in. What do I need to do?
I don't remember ever having this problem since Keychain first appeared. About a week ago I changed my login password and now when I attempt to look at any of my Keychain passwords my computer prompts me to enter my Keychain password (which is my OLD login password) rather than allowing me to enter my new administrative login password. I don't want to have to remember two passwords when only a week ago I only ever had to enter my one current administrative password to authorize Keychain Access to allow me to look at any of my numerous passwords in its window pane. How can I get it to only require me to enter my one new/current adminstrative password? I tried "Keychain First Aid" and error messages to appeared stating: Verification Terminated Unexpectedly or Repair Terminated Unexpectedly A reviewer at MacUpdate had the same experience with Keychain First Aid that I did
Have an old MBP. Just installed lion on it today. Previously, the computer had no password (at login, I would just hit enter so essentially the password was nothing). After installing Lion, that no longer works, and now I can't get into my computer.
I went to the Genius bar and they told me to Control, Option, P, R on a reboot to restore the settings, but with a wireless KeyBoard it does not work. I installed my standard PC keyboard, but am not sure what keys renase the display back to factory settings.
Everytime I wake my computer from sleep, I get a pop-up message asking me to re-enter my password for my iCloud account. I click "remember this password in my keychain" and hit okay, but it still asks me every single time. What gives?
