I keep getting prompted for a keychain password on my Mac, how do I disable that?
Problem: You are constantly prompted to enter your "login" or "admin" keychain password
Cause: This usually occurs when your keychain password (set automatically when your user account was created on your computer) and your default keychain (usually "login") are no longer in-sync. This can be caused by software updates, Operating System Updates, or by using a password reset utility to reset the password of your account.
WARNING: This will delete any items stored in the login keychain. However, if you cannot remember your keychain password, there is no way to access anything in the keychain, anyways. Solution: Delete the "login" keychain Go to: Applications -> Utilities ->Keychain Access Select the "login" keychain in the upper left corner. Note: you might have to click "Show keychains" in the lower left corner before you'll see a list of keychains From the File menu select "Delete keychain 'login'" When prompted select the "Delete keychain and Reference files" option Log off and log back in. The login keychain should be recreated and it should no longer prompt you for a password. You will need to add all your passwords onto your keychain again. As you access various resources with a username & password, check the box that says "save password on my keychain." This will add that password to your keychain for future use.
