Good afternoon Dillon,

Welcome to the Apple Support Communities!

I understand you are being asked for a keychain password when you try to log in to sites on the web. It sounds like your iCloud keychain needs to be reset on your Mac. Take a look at the resources below to address this issue. I've highlighted some key information here for you. Click on the links for complete details.

On a Mac with OS X Yosemite or later:
  1. Choose Apple User uploaded file menu > System Preferences.
  2. Click iCloud, then select Keychain. You might be asked to enter your Apple ID password.
  3. Click Use Code, then choose Forgot Code when you're asked to enter your iCloud Security Code.
  4. Click Reset Keychain to replace your keychain in iCloud with the iCloud Keychain from your device.User uploaded file
  5. Click Reset iCloud Keychain to confirm.
  6. Follow the onscreen steps to create a new iCloud Security Code.
