Morning guys.

I'm not sure if has something to do with iOS13 being released and installed on my phone but this morning OSX is popping up a window telling me i need to change my password (i guess periodically) as a security measure.

Anybody know where this has come from and how to stop OSX asking? If i want to change my password, i will do it myself :cool:.

No one else had this? I have had it on 2 different machines with different icloud accounts so it can't just be me.

I've never had one, and woud not trust it if I did get one. Run Malwarebytes to check your sysytem. No need to get the paid version, the free one will work as needed.

I also got this (after updating safari to 13) and couldn’t tell what triggered it so did the safe thing and cancelled it. Haven’t had time to run any scans because safari 13 is borked and crashes for me after launch.

Are you connected to an ActiveDirectory environment that might have downloaded a security profile to the machine?
