    Yeah, I'm novice to all this, but it seems to me that Apple is protecting everything even more than the US DOD. Said that to a support rep the other day, more like 'you'd think I had some major military secret embedded in my John Tesh albums and he thought that was funny. Of course I am certain he had no clue who John Tesh even is!

    Guys I don't know if any of this will help, but there are a few theories I can debunk.
    1. It's not regional, I'm in Australia and mine just started doing this same thing at random. No idea why.
    2. It's not necessarily an old account, I've only ever used one, so it can't be looking for an old one.
    3. It's not the password thing, because mine definitely has both upper and lower case and at least a number.
    * I thought for a short while that maybe I was getting my password wrong, but it appears this was not the case (see below).
    * resetting my device didn't seem to make a difference, nor did logging out of then back into iCloud.

    So, I too went clicking things at random to try and sort out the issue and seem to have (at least for now) come up with a solution. This is what worked for me:
    Settings -> iTunes and App Stores -> click your Apple ID at the top -> click view Apple ID and enter password (at this point if it logs in, you know your pw is right). Then I clicked on something down the bottom like "remove this device from iCloud" or something similar.

    I don't know how this is different from the settings within iCloud but I know they are. Previously when I changed ANY setting in iCloud, it asked me for my pw. After making this change, it went back to its usual behaviour, and any time I turned an option off it asked me if I wanted to keep the data on the iPad, which it definitely wasn't doing before.

    As far as I can tell I've corrected my issue.
    However I must say, it is Apple, so who knows. I've found in the past that different people on different devices can seem to have the same issue, caused by very different problems.

    This was happening to mine and I fixed it by following one of the replies in this thread. I tried all the log out/ log in reboot crap and it never worked. I finally looked at icloud in my settings and my password wasn't saved there. So I typed in my password and haven't had the problem since. I would try icloud first, but I guess it's possible that one of the other things that uses your apple id (itunes, appstore, etc) could have the same problem.

    Don't log out and back in, go into settings and find the app that doesn't have your password saved. Type in your password.

    This problem starting happening to me after an in app purchase yesterday. I tried everything to resolve it & then I thought, why not try doing what started it all to begin with. So, I made another in app purchase in the same app that I did yesterday & it hasn't happened since the second purchase. Normally I would be ticked off that I "had" to make a 2nd purchase but I chose the cheapest option & it was a purchase I would have made in the future anyway.

    hello i honestly do not do this but i have been having this same problem and ive never met anyone experiencing it too.
    it's frustrating not being able to actually use my itunes or get apps, not a thing without it asking me over and over for my password.
    and everytime ii type it in press sign in the same popup will appear and ask me the same question all over again and this goes on forever. ive been completely locked out for no reason and all i have is a few hundred songs, i've reset my password i've signed out and signed back in, didn't work. ive signed in on the internet apple account but it won't recognize me on my tablet or iphone and this is happening to both my ipad and iphone. helpppppp mee! this is ridiculous! what am i paying for.. iphones honestly just don't last i have an iphone four s and it's always just been weird. glitchiing. deleting call history. etc.

    Make sure you are signed in to iCloud, iMessage and FaceTime. I got the pop up a while back and it turned out I had not signed in to FaceTime after I changed my Apple ID email address.
