Our home MacBook has two users on it: my wife's and mine. This morning we noticed when logged in as my wife's user that in the KeyChain Access it has all of my web passwords. Including passwords I only use on my work laptop. How is this possible?
To clarify exactly what's going on let's define some things:
- Apple/iTunes accounts
- OSX users on home-macbook
- Wife-osx-user (uses Wife-apple-account)
- Husband-osx-user (uses Husband-apple-account)
- OSX users on work-macbook
- Employee-osx user (uses Husband-apple-account)
So this is what happened exactly: On Home-macbook, logged in as Wife-osx-user, we could see passwords in the KeyChain Access program that were only ever used on work-macbook as Employee-osx.
Now if Employee-osx passwords showed up on Home-macbook when logged into Husband-osx-user, that could make some sense. But why are the passwords being shared between users? Are they linked through OSX somehow and can I turn that off?
One important note is that this home-macbook was recently upgraded from Snow Leopard to Yosemite.
When I delete these passwords from the KeyChain Access app, they almost immediately are re-added automatically! How can I stop this?!
