MAC OSX Maverick upgrade breaks keychain password on Startup

keychain_problem[1]I recently went to fix 2 Macs that had been updated to Mavericks and were displaying login prompts below for Keychain Access

  • CalendarAgent
  • accountsd
  • AddressBookSourceSync

There are multiple fixes on the internet which eventually fixed them both

First Fix

  • Open Up Keychain Access
  • Click on Preferences
  • Go to General
  • Reset My Default KeyChain
  • Go back to Preferences then choose KeyChain First aid and run a repair and fix

Second Fix

  • In Finder Select Go in Top Toolbar while pressing the Option key and Click on Libray
  • Go into the /Keychains/ Folder
  • Look for a folder with a name similar to this “A8F5E7B8-CEC1-4479-A7DF-F23CB076C8B8”.
  • Move this folder to the Trash.
  • Immediately choose Apple Menu (?) > Restart… to restart your Mac.


Third Fix

  • Go into Keychain
  • Choose Preferences
  • Choose First Aid Tab
  • Choose “Syncronise login keychain password with account”

Try this if it’s asking you every 5 minutes, instead if just on startup.
