    Hi!

    I bought a new MBP a few weeks ago, and every time I log in I get this prompt, I click "OK" and it goes away, but I'm not sure why it comes up...If I hit "cancel" it will keep reappearing...

    I tried to google it, but I can't seem to find any resolutions, so I'm hoping someone here can help...

    Your Keychain stores passwords so you don't have to enter them each time. If you enter your Keychain password (most likely your admin password), then you won't keep getting that popup.

    I have tried that before, when I enter my admin password, it "shakes"/rejects it, but if I leave it blank and it OK, it goes away until the next time I restart....

    The fact that it rejects the password means you've set a Keychain password different from your admin password. If you can't remember it:

    I wasn't able to reset my keychain password for some reason, but I removed my admin password, and it seems the problem is solved...

    Thanks for your help!
