    My apple ID was linked with my yahoo mail account and yesterday I switched to my Gmail. Since then I have been getting apple popup messages to enter my admin password to access keychain.



    I opened my keychain app today evening I noticed this 'SOSDataSource-ak' associated with strange accounts (engine state, engine peer states, engine-menfest-cache, engine coders). I am very sure I was not doing anything with macpro at 4.44 pm and do not understand why should it appear in keychain local user items list


    I'll really appreciate if you all can help me solve this situation.

    Thanks for the reply. Wow, so as per the link it is normal keychain function!!! But they didn't explain why did it show up in the keychain list also why should it appear today in my computer?

    I looked at the link https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7939336 and I notice now that I have the same 'waldo entries' my keychain 'login list' too which appeared today afternoon. I was trying to install 'free Bitdefender vpn' software that comes with antivirus software at that time.


    Also about the popups for password for keychain, have I messed with keychain function? I only changed the 'apple ID' and kept the same old admin password. Does it cause any syncing issue between 'keychain password' and 'admin password'
