It doesn't matter how many times I have put in my wifi connection - it chooses not to remember and prods me everytime, likewise when I try to login to Microsoft office 365 I'm always prompted for my email account and password.

My macbook was purchased on ebay by my partner.

Hi Leizter - welcome.gif to the Techsurvivors forum. Most of our best techies are in North America, which is asleep now, so you may have to wait a bit for an answer.

I'm in the UK but, sadly, haven't the expertise to solve your problem sad.gif

I have had password problems occasionally and have solved them and other issues using ONYX. In your case this would be version 2.4.8 for OS X 10.7 Lion and
you can find it at this link:

https://www.titanium-software.fr/en/onyx.html

Onyx doesn't cost anything to download and use but I have licensed it myself because I find it useful. The versions vary from OS version to OS version but fixing
the Permissions & Scripts will fix a lot and Cleaning up System & User settings will fix a lot as well.

Also I believe that in OS 10.7 there was a utility for fixing the Keychain in the Utilites folder:

This might be of some use! Keychain problems are a seen a lot!

I don't have the version of OS you're using on any machine I currently have access to so I can't be more specific about the details! Let us know how things are
going with your problem!

computers will work all of the time!

Thank you for coming back to me.

I installed Onyx and followed your instructions, Microsoft 365 now opens without the necessity of having to type in another password.

I am still being asked to type in my wifi password name.

I got into keychain access but there is no keychain repair.

I'm sure you noticed the settings in this tab in Network Settings where you "Remember" Networks and the check box that requires authorization to get onto and off of a WIFI connection.
