    Hi there!

    I've had Yosemite installed on my MBA 2013 since it was officially released. Everything is working fine, but today, after removing a few apps and restarting (usually I just put it in standby), I had three dialogs popping up requesting me to login to iCloud, Messages and FaceTime again - just to enter the password.
    And after I did, the dialogs popped up again. They featured the usual Yosemite-design and my Apple-ID was correctly pre-entered, so it seemed legit.

    Has this happened to anyone else as well?
    With the latest vulnerabilities in Yosemite and iOS I'm just wondering whether this is "normal".

    If I recount my experiences in all, Yosemite asked me three times as of now to re-enter my FaceTime/Messages/iCloud passwords ... Why does it keep forgetting them? Or is this some kind of security feature?

    Thanks in advance for any insight!
    Best regards,

    I had this exact problem!

    Every time I tried to do anything in mail, FaceTime, etc. It would keep asking me to login, when I put a password in it would load then do nothing.

    Even entering my password in the iCloud preferences did nothing but load and then ask again.

    Eventually I found that if you enter your password via "Preferences -> Internet Accounts -> iCloud" That it would then work and i've had no problems since.

    Ok, thank you!

    I'll keep an eye on it and if it pops up again, I'll try your tip. :)

    Best regards,
