Mac keeps asking for password iCloud

My Mac ask again me my password to iCloud. I am not aware of having put in place. It does not accept my apple account password. When I connect to the web page to manage apple id, I don't see anything about passwords specific app and I can't work out what to do when I have a couple of times and a dialog box appears asking me to create a specific app password, but the link takes me to a page of apple with a big announcement about , but nothing about passwords. I consider myself as technically very competent, but this has me completely stumped!

Can anyone help please.

TIA

Charles

A specific App password is used for applications like FaceTime and Messages When you use the two-step verification.

It is really not very intuitive, but you want to go to manage your Apple ID page, then click on modify in the Security section. This will take you to a more detailed page with a section to create a specific App password. Click on generate the password, then you should be able to copy and paste this password into the password box in the Panel in the iCloud window that appeared.

You want to also keep a note of this password, so you can use it again if necessary, however, you can also always revoke and create a new if need be.

See you soon,.

    • You do not use your current e-mail password. If you updated the password on another device, make sure you use the same password on this device.

  • iPhone keeps asking for password hotmail (iOS 10)

    Hello

    I had this problem since upgrading to iOS iOS 10 9. I have 3 accounts hotmail on the iphone, once I get the password it will work properly for a period of time (usually one day) and then ask for passwords with a message indicating an error has occurred and iOS needs approval from hotmail again.

    I noticed that this often happens when I wake up in the morning and I haven't used the iPhone for a few hours. This problem never arose on iOS 9. I've recently updated the iPhone 6 7 and the problem persists.

    Is this a bug of iOS 10? I also tried to delete all my accounts and adding them again without success. My accounts do not use a two-step verification.

    I am currently using iOS on iPhone 10.0.2 7

    Hotmail is notoriously buggy.  For years.  Have you tried their forum for iOS 10 compatibility issues?  There may be suggestions from there.

    Best,

  • iCloud keeps asking for password on iPad, iPhone, and Macbook Air

    I have a Mini iPad, iPhone 6 and Macbook Air, which is still invited to enter my password to iCloud.  All have BONES perfectly up-to-date.  On the iPad, I did a full erase and restore, nothing helps.  Since then, I also signed on iCloud and signed in on the iPad, I have not tried who still on other devices.  My iCloud username is an @me.com format, so I made sure that all newspapers in places (FaceTime, iTunes Store, messaging, etc., use this journal, even if I have a @icloud.com email too.)  I disabled 2 authentication and password specific to the Messages and FaceTime App.

    It seems to have something to do with email in particular.  On the Macbook Air from Apple email program, I get a message on the main window connection failed, and then the iCloud account is set offline.  I have to retype the iCloud password and/or exit and restart messaging to operate.

    Another thing pointing to the problem being with email that I have disabled all Push email for the iPad, and the password are stopped.  Then, when I try to retrieve messages manually, the prompt is displayed again.

    I'm out of ideas.  One thing I did not must give a new password, to disconnect all devices, then add them, one by one.

    Any help would be really appreciated.

    Thank you

  • Windows 8 Remote Desktop keeps asking for password wifi

    Hi Jing,

    Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I imagine the inconvenience you encounter with guests Remote Office for password. I will certainly help you in this matter.

    Sometimes, this problem occurs if you don't have a password set for your local administrative user account. To set a password, you can press the key combination CTRL + ALT + DELETE on the screen, click change password, type and confirm the password.

    Login again and try to enter the WiFi password. Check if the number is reproduced.

    Alternatively, if you do use Remote Desktop, you can try to disable the remote desktop in system properties and check if it helps.

    1. Press Windows key + R.
    2. In the Run dialog box, type SystemPropertiesRemote.exe , and then press ENTER.
    3. Unlike what allows the connection, select don't allow connections to this computer remotely.
    4. Click OK.

    NOTE: You can always activate the setting by clicking on the option allow in step 3.

    See the screenshot below for assistance.

  • Windows Live Mail keeps asking for password

  • System keeps asking for password after trying to change from 32-bit to 64-bit

    I had to do another residential group to work on my computer. My password expired on my default side or administrator, the main façade of the computer where I worked on a year. I apologize I learn the computer language. I CAN NOT ENTER THE SIDE I NEED TO BE WORKING on. NOW I can't do anything on my side again without poping administrator and will ask for a password. can not download, change settings, nothing. also, I was in the process by changing my windows 7 home 32-bit to a 64-bit that came with my computer. A tech friend said he had to reinstall windows and it has installed a 32-bit.  my product key for windows 7 home is on the side of the computer for some reason, he didn't use it. I can't reinstall my windows 64-bit because the administrator request password. I can't do anything.

    Boot from the Windows 7 DVD
    Click Install now
    Accept the license agreement
    When the option is displayed to select a type of installation, click (Custom advanced)

    Select the disk partition where you want to install Windows 7 click Next.

    You will receive the following warning:

    The partition you have selected may contain files from a previous Installation of Windows. If so, these files and folders will be moved to a folder named Windows.old. You will be able to access the information in Windows.old, but you will be able to use your previous version of Windows.

    (At all costs, do NOT click on anything in Format, deletion or Partition name.) So even do a custom installation, your personal files are still kept. Click OK

    The installation program will now begin installation. During installation, your computer will be restarted several times.

    Once the installation is complete, you can complete the Out of Box experience as the choice of your laptop, create a username, password, your time zone. You can then proceed to download the latest updates for Windows and reinstall your applications and drivers.

    You can then retrieve your personal files from the Windows.old folder and reinstall all of your applications and drivers.

  • Keychain keeps asking for password when I start?

    Every time I start my computer takes the Keychain password about 10 times! This happened after I changed my password to iCloud.

    I have experienced similar issues in other forums, it seems that El Capitan has no Keychain first aid? How to stop guests boring for the Keychain password everytime I turn on my computer?

    Please take these steps to resynchronize the iCloud keychain. Your keychain on iCloud and other Apple devices will be unaffected. Take step 2 only if step 1 does not resolve the problem.

    Step 1

    Back up all data.

    Open the iCloud preferences window and uncheck the box for Keychain. You will be prompted to delete the keychain local iCloud. Confirm - the data will remain on the servers. Then re-check the box. Follow one of the procedures described in this article to support to implement the iCloud Keychain on an additional device. Test.

    Step 2

    If your problems persist, uncheck the keychain again and continue.

    Triple-click on the line below on this page to select, then copy the text to the Clipboard by pressing Control-C key combination:

    ~/Library/Keychains

    In the Finder, select

    Go ▹ go to the folder...

    from the menu bar and paste it into the box that opens by pressing command + V. You won't see what you pasted a newline being included. Press return.

    A folder named "Key ring" should open. Inside, it is a subfolder with a similar long names (but not the same as) that:

    421DE5CA-D745-3AC1-91B0-CE5FC0ABA128

    The above is only an example; your will have a different name for the same general shape. Drag the subfolder (not the key ring file) to the trash and empty.

    Restart the computer and re - activate iCloud keychain.
