  • 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.



    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.

    My iMac mail keeps asking for the password for one of my email addresses.

    The address is..., when I enter the password it doesn't recognize it and declare it invalid.

    Moments later, the mail is delivered.

    A month ago I had the same problem which at any mail arriving. I tried many things and finally put in place a new internet/mail account in preferences. So, after having removed the old settings and reinsert the it worked, until today.

    I have 2 other addresses of e-mail which are not affected by this bug.

    This happened only since I changed to El Capitan.

    Your email provider may reject your password for several reasons, including:

    • 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.
    • Your email provider needs you to update or reset your password for security reasons. For example, if you have turned on googles two step of checking your Gmail account in Mail now requires the appropriate password app.
    • Your disabled email provider or suspension of your account. Your provider of e-mail for help.

    McAfee is a huge problem with Windows Mail.  See if you want to use, wait until you get the job of Winmail.

    Check if you can connect webmail and that works very well and it's not a problem on the end of the server messaging or because of misspelled powers.  Then delete your account in WinMail, compact and repair the database (see and make sure that you have disabled the e-mail analysis then add your account to mail back again and see if it works.


  • I changed my gmail password on my Mac mail application, but she always asks the password on my ipad

    I changed my google / password gmail via Safari on my Mac and used a password generated Safari. The email clients on all my devices began to ask for the password. I entered manually on my MacBook, but each device is still asking for the new password. I have iCloud on all devices with active Keychain, I missed something because I thought that the password should be migrated to all other e-mail clients. Is there a way to do this automatically because the auto generated passwords are difficult to remember without having to type in and in more you can not copy and paste of the keychain, entry to the app on the iPad.

    Thanks for any help.

    Greetings, tmoore2310!

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support. I see that your gmail password has been updated on your MacBook Pro upgrade to Mac OS Sierra. You also made certain that the iCloud Keychain on your Mac was aware of the update, but devices still require this password. I'll be happy to help you with this.

    The first thing you want to make sure of is that you are connected to the same iCloud ID on all your devices. If it is in order, read this article to learn more, especially in this section:
    Get help using iCloud keychain

    If you cannot synchronize iCloud Keychain with other devices

    Make sure that your device is on a Wi - Fi or the cellular network. If the connection seems strong, try the following steps:

    1. turn off iCloud Keychain on all devices.
    2. turn on iCloud Keychain on the device that has the most up-to-date keychain items.
    3. turn on iCloud Keychain on your other devices. They will be updated with your iCloud new keychain.

    Have a great day!

    It's really strange

    3.12 GB (4)

    which means that Safari has only a couple of open tabs, but it consumes 3 + GB of your memory.  There must be some very greedy Javascript running in one or more of these pages.  Here again, it's Snow Leopard, so this version of Safari can not create processes by web page, then you might have dozens of tabs open, which would explain 3 + GB of memory used by Safari.

    Avast is the likeliest suspect.

    I suspect things MacKeeper remains links a MacKeeper withdrawal (unless the abduction was recent, then it could be that something damaged MacKeeper).

    Mettle network stuff.  If it's hogging the network that can interfere with other network applications, such as Mail (I think I have more to get here, but I also think it should be mentioned).

    These are all red flags, that I can see.
