    Hello All, iOS and MacOS is constantly asking for my Yahoo password. Any ideas to why? Sorry if this has been asked already, tried to do a quick search but didnt see anything.

    Are you browsing in Private Mode? Do you have cookies blocked? Do you use a VPN?

    No to all of the above.

    Might be a Yahoo! thing, have you tried looking on their support site or contacting them?

    I have also been receiving prompts to re-enter my password in a large number of my apps. Around the same time, I began receiving a notification to enable read receipts each time I open an iMessage and my visual voicemail has defaulted to only letting me call my voicemail and enter a PIN. Apps that have enabled Touch ID login also keep defaulting to making me manually enter my password. This is all on an iPhone 7+ with iOS 10.1.1.

    Sorry I don't have an answer for you but I get this pretty regularly and it is ALWAYS yahoo. Keychain even has my Yahoo password, I had keychain generate it for me so of course I don't remember it, I always have to open up the passwords in Safari and drag that where I can see it, then type it in the Internet Accounts System Preferences. Its a big PITA. This happens regardless of which Mac I'm using (although it hasn't happened yet on my 'new to me' 2015 MBP in Sierra).

    One of the reasons I left Yahoo ages ago. All my email accounts would work except Yahoo. Had to constantly enter a password. Go to check my portfolios, same nonsense over and over again.

    All of my stuff has been asking for my password this morning. I have been logged out of iCloud Keychain, had to log back in.
