When I log into Yahoo Mail I get this same popup:

************************

"Safari wants to use your confidential information
stored in "login.yahoo.com" in your keychain.

Do you want to allow access to this item?

Always Allow Deny Allow"

************************************

Another option would be nice. "DO NOT ASK ME AGAIN!"

Is there any way to kill this popup?

A small item in the grand design. But still annoying!

MacPro, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

    If you choose "Always" then the popup shouldn't reappear.

    That would be true if I wanted my confidential information in yahoo to be stored in my keychain.

    **********
    "Safari wants to use your confidential information
    stored in "login.yahoo.com" in your keychain."
    ***********

    I do not want my confidential information stored in my keychain.

    How do I eliminate keychain? I never use it. Can I delete it?

    Many thanks!

    Your keychain is where OS X stores all system confidential information such as your admin password. If you eliminate the Keychain then you no longer can logon to your computer. The keychain is protected by strong encryption. It's an excellent place to store confidential information.

    You may not use the Keychain specifically, but applications on your computer do use it. What Safari is doing is asking your permission to get the login information for your Yahoo account. This is only for login purposes. Nothing is provided elsewhere. It is secure.
