    All I did was change my Apple ID password and now everything seems to be broken on my iMac, MacBook Air & MacBook Pro.

    On all machines I am continually prompted to keep entering my iCloud password. What can I do to fix this mess?

    I am also being continuously prompted to confirm my Gmail password & OneDrive has now broken across my entire network of machines & refuses to accept my Microsoft password.

    Help!

    Anyone? All my machines are totally inoperable.

    How can changing my password completely screw up all my machines like this? Unbelievable.

    It might be too obvious but did you try rebooting all of them?

    I've gotten the repeated prompts before and usually that worked or I just cancelled out of all of them and connected them again later on.

    Yes, tried rebooting. It seems like something has gone seriously wrong with keychain/authentication. Anything that requires authentication/password is not working. I'm beyond frustrated & don't know what to do.

    Try booting into Recovery mode? Not sure if you can reset keychain stuff from there though.
