OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Force-disable Ability For Keychain To Store Specific Passwords?

Apr 5, 2012

Does anyone know of a way to force-disable the ability for Keychain to save/store the passwords for specific services? For example, when a user launches a FileMaker database, they're propted (via a Finder-style popup window) to enter their username/password for that database. And there's the checkbox option to "Remember this password in my keychain". The same thing happens when mounting Share Points via AFP on one of my Xserves — the user is prompted for their login credentials and given the option to remember the login info in their keychain. 

It's our company's policy that users DO NOT use keychain to store passwords for these to services, but thus far, aside from physically checking the individual user accounts on the various machines (which is pretty much impossible), there's no way to enforce this policy. So, I'm hoping to find a way to disable the ability for passwords for these services to be stored in the user's keychain.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Decrypt Keychain Passwords Using The Security Command?

Jun 12, 2012

So I find I'm one of the 6.5 million people whose LinkedIn passwords were recently grabbed by thieves (confirmed by LinkedIn).  That password was used on a number of other websites, so I clearly need to run around and change a bunch of passwords.I have a ton of Internet passwords stored in my keychain though, so working my way through them one-by-one will take forever: double-click an entry, click Show Password, enter my login password, lather, rinse repeat.  For some reason, there are several records stored for the same website. So, is there some way I can run the security command, give it my login password once, then have it display the unencrypted Internet passwords?  I played around with it a bit a couple days ago, but never got it to work as I wanted.  I'm on Leopard, but also have a Lion system available (assuming the Leopard keychain file can be grokked by the Lion keychain tools).  Anything which will lessen the effort necessary to identify all my sites which use the bad password.

OS X :: Using Keychain Access - Safari / Keychain Fill Passwords Automatically?

May 9, 2009

I've never used OSX before about a week ago, but I am picking up on it well (I've used GNU/Linux for almost ten years so I know my way around an operating system). But I don't really think keychain access is working as it should...It's hard to explain. I mean, the way I understand it, shouldn't it be saving the passwords I type into Safari and auto-filling them? Because it only auto-fills some passwords. Paypal autofills, but my bank's website doesn't, and even this forum doesn't autofill. I have to type in my password every time I visit.

Is this working as intended? Is there a way I can get Safari or Keychain to fill in all passwords for me automatically? This is leopard on an iMac G5 iSight model. I did a fresh install like a week ago. Sorry if my question is vague but that's the best I can do with the amount I understand.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: How To Disable Keychain

Feb 9, 2012

For our users Keychain is a nightmare - especially because they do not remember the first password - as the network enforces them to change it every 90 days. With this the keychain pop keeps coming up constantly and is affecting the users working. So I would like to know how to stop keychain or to disable it?

OS X :: 10.6 To 10.5 Downgrade (Keychain Not Remember Passwords)

Mar 21, 2009

After using snow leopard for a couple of months I didn't really enjoy it. Applications crashed, plus it was only the beta. I decided to Downgrade to leopard. I backed up using time machine, cleared my HD in Disc Utility, and tried to restore. This didn't work since the default applications were not compatible with Leopard s I had to start fresh then drag my apps and everything manually. After a couple of days, it was all done. Now after 3 months since I downgraded, Keychain is really starting to tick me off. Every time I use an application that requires a password, it never remembers and I always have to type it. I've tried using pacifist and putting back in keychain, nothing. Tried to make a new keychain nothing. Tried to repair, nothing. What is going on here.

OS X V10.4 :: Keychain Won't Save Gmail Passwords?

Mar 3, 2012

I have never used Keychain. I posted elsewhere herein that I deleted my cookies and now, tho' I am logging in to all the online password-protected accounts, despite selecting "remember me" or "keep me logged in" I wind up having to log in every time I attempt to access.So I thought I'd try using Keychain to hold the passwords to make things a little more efficient until I (if ever) solve the cookie problem. I deleted the old keychain and created a new one. When I restarted the computer, since I have Goggle Notifier, the first thing it asked me was if I wanted to store the Gmail password in the keychain which I created—yes—no problem with Gmail. I went to the other accounts and logged in, assuming Keychain would ask me if I wanted to store the password for that online account in Keychain as well, but I got no screen enabling me to do that.

Safari :: Passwords Not Saving In Keychain?

Apr 5, 2012

I use Safari and have done so since owning macs for years. Never had a problem with keychain and safari remembering passwords and usernames. Since updating to the latest verison of Safari 5.1. I've encountered a problem where it won't remember the password for my websites. I have turned on autofill / user names and passwords. Even tried deleting the partciular sites from my Keychain, then removing the site and username from the autofill list in safari. But when i do this and go back to the site i want to save details on Keychain won't save any of my details. I have tried repairing keychain, restoring from an old keychain folder from my time machine. But nothing!

I just discovered KeyChain. Great idea! However, when I chose iCloud and entered the password to view iCloud password, there was, what appeared to be enough random letters, numbers and symbols to fill the entire data entry window. I looked at other passwords and only one other was weird. can I changed a passeord when I am in KeyChain?

OS X :: System Library Restoration - Keychain Passwords

Nov 12, 2008

I recently had to restore my 1st gen MBP. I recovered essentially all of its files: Users, Library, and Applications, because I wanted to be able to restore things just as they were, without having to re-install 20 apps and change the settings again on 50. I followed Apple's instructions on how to restore "Users", but that's all that they instruct for. I know that restoring my system library is what led to the following problems, but I have virtually no Terminal knowledge and would like to know if there are things I can do to fix these issues: I very often get asked for the system keychain password. I know exactly what it is, but it denies me every time. Once that window goes away (even with 'cancel') most things seem to run fine. But I often have to enter other passwords later.

--My wireless networks are not automatically accessed (I think this is related to the previous issue) until I choose one of them. At least it doesn't ask me for the network passwords every time.
--Sometimes if I right-click on an image to open it in Preview it gives me two preview programs to choose from, but only the older one opens. I only have one 'Preview' in Applications.

OS X Mavericks :: How To Print List Of Keychain Passwords

Jun 25, 2014

I don't find keychain passwords always propagate to all my apple devices so I want to print a list of accounts and passwords for safekeeping. The export list item on the menu is greyed out.  The files are binary so they're not easily read with a text editor.  What are my options besides making back-up copies of the keychain files which, obviously, will become obsolete next time I add a password?

Software :: Keychain Isn't Updating Stored Domain Passwords?

Oct 5, 2010

I work in the IT Department. I have about 3,000 Windows XP machines and just 10 Mac. The graphic designers have to be special. The macs have been bound to Active Directory. The issue that is causing me such headaches and sleepless nights is that when the Mac users change their domain password every 30 days, they get locked out of the printer server, intranet and entourage email (Exchange 2003).

How do I get the keychain to update the stored domain resource passwords (exchange, intranet, print server) with the new domain password? I really need these people to stop calling the helpdesk every 30 days.

The Macs run DAVE and do connect to Windows Shares. They are all brand new Macs running the latest OS Snow Leopard with all the updates.

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: "push"/ "force" Safari To Open At Login, To A SPECIFIC Page?

Can I "push"/ "force" Safari to open at login, to a specific page?  Is this possible? I have been asked to get all client macs to open to the enterprise Intranet site at login so that news/service updates are put in front of the clients automatically...In WGM I can configure for users or Machines to open Safari at login, and it does this, but does not open the specified Homepage until they Command-n or click for New Window.Likewise if I sit at the client machine and configure Safari to run at login, again the application does activate, but needs client to call up a new page before Homepage shows.

recently bought a macbook pro and slowly getting the hang of it. spaces is really great but i often forget to make the best of it because i'm too quick to open the applications before switching to the right space. so, as the title says, is there a way to make sure programs always use a specified space when starting up? i know you can always move the programs afterwards but not unless you use the mouse and even after moving they still consider the startup space thier "main" space (for error messages and the like). also, i'd like to use my mouse as little as possible

OS X :: Is There A Way To Force A Folder To Open With A Specific View Option?

Jun 4, 2009

I'm currently running the latest version of Leopard, all up to date. Recently, I started to collect some old footage (videos) in my Movie folder, I even added some silly covers to them like Joe's birthday - 2009 etc., The thing is that even with the ICON set to 128x128 I still think it's a bit small, so whenever in this folder I like to use the CoverFlow view and all it's glory.

Now, here comes the tricky part, is there a way to force this folder to ALWAYS open in the CoverFlow view? I just want this particular folder to do this, the rest should open normally in the default view with their 48x48 icons.

OS X :: Disable Automount For Specific External Drive

Feb 21, 2010

I have an external drive that is permanently hooked-up to my iMac via Firewire. I use this drive only to perform a bootable disk image of my hard drive at regular intervals using the CCC scheduler. The backups are performed only once a week. I would like that this backup drive not be mounted when I or anyone else logs in to the computer. It annoys me to hear the drive turning and vibrating until it spins down and seeing it's icon on the desktop. Is there any way to prevent automount of this particular drive? I know I can dismount it manually using Diskutil, but I want everything to be automated. Any clue as to whether CCC will mount it when needed if it is unmounted?

OS X :: Disable Java In Safari For Specific Sites?

Mar 15, 2010

Does anyone know of a way I can disable Java on some sites in Safari, but have it enabled for the rest? I don't see an option natively, but maybe there is a plugin or a plist that can be edited?

The reason is my university uses Blackboard / Vista and every time I log in it asks me if I want to allow it to run. I refuse to do so, and it doesn't have an option to never allow it to run for this site.

Please don't bother posting if you do not know the difference between Java and JavaScript.
