I've been repeatedly receiving this notification since this morning. If I click the 'show' button in the notification (which I've only done once) it opens my System Preferences / Apple ID with a dialog pop-up giving me the option of cancelling or changing my password. I haven't requested to change my password - but I did run a system update to 12.4 yesterday. Is this someone trying to hack my account or possibly a system bug from the 12.4 update? Has anyone else been experiencing this?

Yep. A little while ago received a "verify email address" password reset request (not me). Later got the notification on my phone as well. Restarted my phone to clear the message then reset my PW manually... hopefully the hacker didn't gain access to anything. Anyone know anything?

May be someone trying to get into accounts. If you have 2FA turned on with a strong password, you should be fine. I used to get that kind of message a few years ago when someone would try and get into my account.

Had this problem as well over the last few months. Show location never displayed anything. Stopped for now. Changed my passwords just in case via

This exact same issue started for me yesterday. Use several different computers, one of them also updated to 12.4 recently. Getting constant prompts that password reset was sent. Despite clicking on the notification to show to location of the request, nothing comes up besides the same prompt described by the op.

Exact same problem here too, started yesterday too. 2 computers, one recently updated to 12.4, the other updated about a week ago. Getting multiple prompts that password reset was sent too. When click on the notification to show request location, nothing comes up, brings me to preference screen.

I have been getting this message and others on my macBook air, my phone and my watch. I have changed my password at least 17 times so far. I have had 2 factor authentication since it was available. I'm convinced it is not a hack but a f--ked up iCloud issue that Apple isn't telling us about.

Since the most recent "Security Update" of macOS Monterey 12.5, watchOS 8.7 and iOS 15.6, it has reduced and the Reset Password pop-up disappears after I click on it without forcing me to change password again as it did in the past.

Apple - start being transparent and honest about issues that affect us! Your arrogance and secrecy do not become you as the largest tech company in the world.

I keep getting these notifications, after I changed my icloud password. Any idea how to make apple stop?

Same here for the past two days. I already have 2 factor ID, and I changed my apple ID password. Notification still came up. Checked my apple account and system. Nothing amiss. Booted several times. Notification kept coming. I called MAC Support. They spent over an hour trying different things. Bottom line is they had me go to system settings, sign out of my apple id (which takes a long time btw) and then sign in again, which seems to have done the trick. If that doesn't work. Call Apple Support. One of the things they had me try worked. I think the last one was the one.

Ditto, same fix.

Mine started after changing Apple ID password (hack to remove ghosted old computer forward in iPhone iMessage) then reentering password on Apple Watch (hand drawing passing words, crappy interface). Then this every login reset password with Mac popup started. Still havent changed icloud password on iPhone but it seems to keep on working. Quite a mess on multiple device icloud password change behavior.
