    I have three 4K ATVs here and only one prompts me for the iTunes password usually weekly but sometimes every few days. Is there any fix for this?

    Seems it started doing this when there was a power failure about a month ago. I needed to enter the password for two of the ATVs when they powered back on.

    I always get the prompts on my iPhone.

    Password settings must have reset back to "15 minutes" when power came back.

    Go into Settings>> Accounts> iTunes and App Store >>Password Settings:-

    When set, the 'Require Password' is local to device, not global to your Apple ID. i.e the change on one device will not affect any others signed in at the same time
