Get Rid of the Repeated iCloud Sign-In Request

--Tuesday, Nov.29, 2016

Is there a repeated pop-up window showing up all of a sudden and prompting you to enter your password for your Apple ID so as to sign in to iCloud just exactly as the following image shows?

Pop-up Window

Quite a few readers have reported to us the very same situation. Let's see one of the email I've received recently from Mary.

"Hi Selena. A window appears requiring me to enter the password of my Apple ID, but the fact is that I have already had my iCloud account logged in. Why it keeps showing up? It almost prompts around ten times in a day. I'm getting annoyed now. Is there any way to make it stop! Thanks!"

It's okay if the pop-up prompts once in a day, however, it would be driving people nuts if it keeps showing up now and then especially when you're watching video or browsing websites. Though we could simply get rid of it by tapping on "Cancel" option, why not stop it for good?

Reason: Why iCloud Sign-In Request Keeps Prompting All the Time?

According to the reports from iOS users, I've noticed that there are two causes that result in the repeated iCloud sign-in request. See which reason might be the reason that gets you in trouble.

1. Update iPhone/iPad/iPod to the latest version of iOS. This is the most common reason. Since iOS 10 has released on September 13th, many users have upgraded their iDevice in order to enjoy the new features of iOS 10. Updating iOS will download a firmware, which is used to replace the previous iOS version, so your iCloud settings might not be synced with the new version in time and thus cause this issue.

2. Restore data via iTunes. Some users report that they come across the repeated iCloud request after they recover contents from previous backups with iTunes. However, iTunes will erase your existing data and settings, so your previous settings of iCloud might be cleared.

Causes of Repeated iCloud Request

Method 1: Re-enter the Password as Required

This is the simplest solution. Though I believe you might have tried it already, it's still worth trying again.

Just do as the pop-up prompts. Type in the correct password of your Apple ID and then hit "OK". Check out whether it would prompt again later. If not, congratulations. The problem has been addressed.

Method 2: Re-log in iCloud Account

If the first solution doesn't work as expected, you should give it a shot to this method. Please read on and do as the following steps.

Step 1. Open "Settings" on iPhone/iPad/iPod.

Step 2. Scroll down and tap on "iCloud".

Step 3. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and "Sign Out" your iCloud.

Step 4. Tap again "Sign Out" and choose "Delete from My iPhone".

Step 5. Turn off your iDevice and then turn it on.

Step 6. Now, re-go to "Settings" > "iCloud".

Step 7. Enter your iCloud account as required, and tap "Sign In" to log in.

Method 3: Re-enable iCloud Preferences

It is also possible that the issue is caused by the process of syncing your data to iCloud. Therefore, you may need to change the iCloud preferences by disabling and re-enabling them, such as Mail, Contacts, Calendars, Reminders, Safari, Notes, News and Wallet. Please check out the following steps.

Step 1. Open "Settings" on your iOS devices.

Step 2. Swipe down the screen and choose "iCloud" option.

Step 3. Scroll down and toggle off the bar of each item.

Step 4. Select "Delete from My iPhone" and disable one by one.

Step 5. Enable each item again.

Step 6. Reboot your device and see whether the problem persists.

Method 4: Check Whether the Email is Correct

The fourth solution may sound a bit weird, but it does works according to a few readers. If you accidentally type in the wrong email address to log in iCloud, the pop-up window might thus appear. For the "wrong email address", it means that you may mess up with the uppercase and lowercase letters in address spelling, so please check out whether your email address is wrong. If so, please log out your account and then log in it.

Check Email Address

Please try the methods above one by one. Hope these solutions works for you.
