    I'm not sure what caused this problem, but it is very annoying. Every time I open an application, a pop up asks me for my keychain password. I do not remember what it is, and I have to click cancel every time. It keeps on popping up every time I open a new webpage, and I want to get rid of it quickly. This is what it looks like:

    Can anyone help with this?

    Go to Keychain, double-click the entry in question, go to Access Control, uncheck "Ask for Keychain password"

    When I clicked Access Control, it asked for my password again. :(

    You're looking in the wrong place.

    "~/Library/Keychains/login.keychain" That means: yourusername/Library/Keychains/login.keychain

    Isn't your keychain password your log in password?

    It usually is, but doesn't have to be:

    Changing your keychain password
    You can change the password for your keychain at any time. However, if you want your default keychain to be unlocked automatically when you log in, make sure your keychain password is the same as your Mac OS X login password for your account.

    If your Mac OS X login password is not the same as your default keychain password, you’ll be asked for the password whenever an application needs access to your keychain and your keychain is locked.
