I am getting unexpected prompts for my Apple ID on my iPhone SE at random times, including on the lock screen. Here are a couple of examples:
On the lock screen
In the EMail app
These started appearing a couple of weeks ago. The prompt dialogs have no identifying information to tell me who's asking, so I'm not about to enter my Apple password until I know who's asking and why.
I have correlated these to having one specific app either running or configured for background refresh. If the app is closed and background refresh is disabled, I do not seem to get the prompts.
The app is Appigo ToDo, which has a cloud-based component that does require sign-in. However,
- I am already signed in correctly to ToDo Cloud, and if I just dismiss the prompt (Cancel) without entering anything I get no error, and ToDo Cloud proceeds with no issues;
- If I enter my password for ToDo Cloud, the error message is
So, something, possibly related to Appigo ToDo Cloud, is asking for my APPLE password.
Question(s): Given a password prompt dialog, is there any way to determine the source of the request, and the reason for the request? What else could be causing iOS to be prompting for my Apple password at random times?
