ITunes :: Can Disable Prompt For Password When Start It

Apr 20, 2012

When I open iTunes, I am asked for a password, TWICE. I don't wish to use automatic downloads at this time, and I don't need to tell my computer that more than once until I change my mind, as opposed to twice every-time I open iTunes.

OS X :: Master Password To Automatically Put In "real" Password?

Aug 27, 2009

I use different passwords for EV-RY-THING. For safety mainly.

I was wondering if there's a way to make "keychain" remember all the passwords so like.. when I start putting in the email/ user name then it'll automatically know which I am seeking access too?

I have around 40 accounts on miscellaneous things... Facebook, Ebay, Gmail, different forums, etc...


I have multiple Live ID'S/ Gmails/ Myspaces(whatever, just multiple ID's somewhere)... can I make it so as soon as I start entering the email, it'll autofill/ put in the password?

How can I make keychain FORCE remember data?

OS X :: Password Prompt Before App Install?

Oct 12, 2010

On my MBP, I get prompted for a PW before any program gets installed.

On my iMac, at times I get prompted, other times I don't.

I just downloaded handbrake and installed but there was no PW prompt.

The day before I installed a plug in for Quicktime and was prompted for a PW.

How can I get so that I get prompted for a PW every time before anything gets installed?

OS X :: Stop The Password Prompt?

Sep 24, 2009

this seems pretty basic, but I can't seem to find a way to turn off the password prompt in Mac OSX.

I have an account for my parents, and they don't need a password, but if they try and install software etc - it comes up with the Password Prompt window. Obviously, you don't enter anything into the password field and just continue on, but seeing how there is no password in the first place, why does it still ask for one?

I've been a Mac user for a few years, but have never came across this - I always use a password

OS X :: Screensaver Password Prompt Timeout?

Sep 14, 2007

I have enabled the prompt for a password when waking from screensaver and this works fine as long as I respond to the password prompt quickly. However, if I don't respond fairly quickly then the password prompt disappears leaving a black screen with just the mouse pointer visible. No matter what I type I can't bring the password prompt back up and therefore can't gain access. The only way I can do this is to press the power button and wait for 5 minutes or so before bringing it back out of sleep and typing my password more quickly.

The machine is a new iMac 2.4G 24" if that makes any difference. All latest updates applied.

OS X Mavericks :: FaceTime Password Prompt?

Jun 21, 2014

Both iCloud and FaceTime are continually prompting for passwords.  Hitting 'cancel' usually dismisses the iCloud box, but the FaceTime box just keeps reappearing. 

I don't want to enter either password until I'm ready to, and I especially could care less about FaceTime because I don't use it on this computer.  It can go away completely.  So how can I shut it off and tell it to stop bothering me?

Software :: Need To Reset Master Password

Aug 25, 2006

I recently purchased a used imac g4 from a friend but I cannot seem to get it started. I tried to log in with the master password but do not have the password or install disk for OSX. I asked my friend about it and he said the same thing, he lost the user and master password including install disk. I took the comp from his hands anyway, it's in new condition and he never really used it, just forgot about it I suppose.

It also seems that on startup the mac searches for disks and servers, so it could of been a part of a network system? I would like to know if there is a way to get into the bios and reset the whole system without password prompts and all that. Which is the best way to do this? I have the mac osx install disk from my ibook but I tried to boot the disk and it's not booting. I also have the install disk for os tiger and that's not booting either. There must be a super secure lock on the system.

OS X :: Password Hints From Screensaver Login Prompt

Jul 20, 2010

First of all, how do I get my password hint to show up from the screensaver login/password prompt? I have my password and hint set up so that only people close to me will be able to figure it out in case they ever need to use my laptop, however at the moment the hint doesn't even show up. Also, I'm aware that you can change the text to the login page for user accounts, but is there any way to change the text for the screensaver login prompt? If so, where would I find it in "Library"?

MacBook :: No Password Set But Prompt Keeps Coming On Startup

Apr 20, 2012

I used to have a password on my Macbook but I got annoyed of having to type it in every time I closed/opened the lid and the Macbook woke up. I got rid of the password through my system settings, but the prompt kept coming up when I opened the Macbook, but there was no password. I would just leave the password field blank and hit enter. Okay, no big deal. I just restarted my Macbook because it was lagging with video, and its asking me for a password to start up. I tried leaving it blank and just hitting Log In, the prompt shakes back and forth. I tried my old password before I got rid of it, the prompt just shakes. I don't have a password, why am I getting a prompt on startup and how do I get past it.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Resetting Master Password At Login?

May 14, 2012

Lately I've been noticing that when logging into our SnowLeopard miniserve after "fat-fingering" the password once, I am prompted to reset the Master Password. When doing this you are also informed that the keychain will be updated. Is there a system level setting that is causing this? It doesn't seem like you should have to reset the Master Password/keychain after one failed attempt to log into the system...?
