OS X :: Unable To Auto-login To Guest Account / Safari Wants To Use Keychain Login

Jan 6, 2009

I work for a company that has several Macs available for customers' use. These are basically demo-machines that they can play with, and at the end of each day, the machines are wiped and rebooted.

The way we do this is simple: the machines auto-login to the Guest account, which will wipe the account at the end of the day. Well, getting a few new Macs in this week, I simply copied over the entire Guest user account to the new machines to avoid reloading all the demo content, preferences, etc. And truthfully, the machines have been working great.

Except one thing. The computer keeps giving me that annoying message that says "Safari (or Finder, or System Preferences, or anything!) wants to use keychain 'login'". And asks for the login keychain password. Well here's the thing: the Guest accounts don't have passwords!

So I looked up a little bit on this topic, and did things like... Went to "Keychain List" in the Edit menu of Keychain Access, and deleted both the "login" and "system" keychains. No help. I went to Preferences in Keychain Access and said "Reset My Keychain". When doing this, however, it asks for the new password for the login keychain.

The problem with this is that I cannot leave the field blank! The Guest account doesn't have a password, so how am I supposed to not create a password?

OS X Mavericks :: Missing Login Keychain For Guest Account In 10.9.4 Lab Setting

Sep 3, 2014

I have a lab of ~30 MacBook Airs running OS 10.9.4.  We have MS students login using the Guest account with no password.  The Guest account folder is deleted after every logout.  Starting this week we are seeing keychain popups saying:  A keychain cannot be found to store "Safari." or "Chrome."  selecting Reset To Defaults makes no difference. 

Opening Keychain Access is a slow process, but it does eventually come up.  There is no Login keychain.  And the Local Items and System Roots keychains are locked and do not open with a blank password. 

Frankly, I don't want this guest account to be remembering any URL related password.  So is there a way to shut down or highly restrict the Keychain functionality?  If not, what do I need to do to fix or prevent all these popup messages and system pauses as the MacBook figures out for the nth time that Keychain isn't working as it expects it to?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Specify The Login Items For The Guest Account On Mac?

Mar 30, 2012

I would like to be able to configure what applications start when it's logged on using the guest account.  For normal accounts you would use the login items option in Users and Groups but this option is not available for the Guest user. 

I saw this thread from 2010 - [URL] so downloaded the server admin tools for 10.7.2 but the guest account didn't appear in the user list so I presume this has been changed again since Snow Leopard.

Software :: Keychain Login Cannot Find To Store Safari

Dec 28, 2007

I keep getting this message. I just installed Leopard, but the problem began right before the install. Keychain "login" cannot be found to store "Safari", with the option to Restore Defaults or Cancel. It's driving me freaking crazy, I'm sure it's an easy fix. Let me know what to do. My Keychain Access is empty, showing no passwords or "login" I usually store passwords into my keychain, why aren't they still there? How does this problem start?

OS X :: Unable To Login To Network / Login Disabled And Connection Failed

Apr 15, 2010

G4 MDD networked with Mini for approx. 3 years now via a LinkSys BEFSR41 wired router. Ethernet cables are CAT6's with gold-plated ends. Did an erase/install (+ updates) of Panther on G4. ISP is Comcast Cable. Just upgraded my Motorola modem from Surfboard 5100 to SB 5101 yesterday. My network settings are ok...file sharing is turned on...I can ping each 'puter from the other (showing my connection is good).

I have internet access (showing that the router is still good according to Cisco). Now, however, I can't even bring up the window on the G4 asking for my pw....all I get is connection failed, no response from the server. From the Mini, I get Unknown User, incorrect password or login is disabled. I haven't a clue what the problem can be. Everything I do daily depends upon the network connection.

I am unable to log in to my IMac.

PowerPC :: Unable To Login / Freeze After Login

Jul 28, 2008

I have an iMac G5 1.8Ghz and Today when I logged in, it just froze on the apple OS X background. I waited 2 minutes, and nothing happened. It was weird because it's the first time it happened. Anyway, I turned the iMac off and re-tried. It did the exact same thing. So I turned it off, unplugged everything, waited around a minute, plugged it all back in, and it worked fine.

But yeah, just trying to work out why it would do that... because this is going to my brother and I don't want it to just crash when I give it to him.

MacBook :: Annoying Message - Safari Wants To Use "keychain Login" Enter Password

Apr 5, 2010

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?
