I've had the phone for at least 18 months. In the last week for some reason, the phone continually asks me to enter my Apple ID password. This happens every time I unlock the phone, and often while i'm in the middle of using an application. If I cancel the request, the dialog box comes back a few seconds later. If I enter my apple ID it goes away until next time I want to use the phone.


Help please. Might I have inadvertently activated something that requires me to enter my Apple ID password every time I use the phone? Is there something I can turn off to fix this. I've tried shutting down and restarting the phone.


Thanks for any suggestions.
