View Full Version : Make iOS Simulator Stop Asking for Password

Jul 18, 2011, 06:25 PM
Whenever I build and run an app I've made in Xcode on the iOS simulator, it will always ask for a username and password from a user in the "Developer Tools" group. If I don't give it one, my app wont run, and I have to quit iOS simulator and restart it to make my app work. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

I'm not an expert or anything but I'm pretty sure that a username and password is demanded because it needs access to your information on iOS. So I don't think there is a way to make it stop. And again... I'm not an expert. ;)

Hope this helped !

What version of Mac OS X and XCode are you using? Was there something unusual about how you installed XCode?

Yeah, having to authenticate every time you run the iOS Simulator is not normal behavior.

Shouldn't this information be stored in your keychain.

Check with the workgroup manager from the server admin tools to ensure your user is member of the "Developer Documentation" and "Developer Tools" group.
