I think it is a valid level of security. If you log in to your computer and step away for anything, people could have access to literally everything you have logged into with username and password.

Also not sure if it is really meant to be used on a regular basis, something like iCloud keychain or something similar should be more useable and safe for daily use. I only use keychain if I forget my wifi password as it is not something I am logging into unless I buy a new device.

I am on board with this rationale; but maybe they can put the whole app under the admin password - enter the password to open the app, and once in, do not keep asking for the admin password for every password enquiry.

I actually use keychain access quite often because I have multiple logins for some websites/portals; and I am not really sure which ID is for what purpose. So, when i click on each instance, I have to enter the password so many times.

Cheers

That does sound like it would be simpler. Wonder if it is more complicated to have an app with that level of security to open rather then simply needing a password to unlock the specific keychain you are looking for.

That, IMHO would be a much more sensible and practical way of having the keychain password access work.

But it's not much of a hassle in my case as my OS username password is basically not much more than a mouse click. Nice and fast and simple.
