Question: Password field automatically populating when I try to login
I'm using an iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2013) wireless keyboard. I am running Mac OS High Sierra Version 10.13.3. More often than not, when attempting to login after sleep mode, my login field automatically populates and when I try to back out the auto fill, it just keeps refilling. Luckily, I have a standard Mac keyboard I plug in when this happens. Lately, it has been happening more and more often. I found another thread going back a couple of years with a post as recent as 12/2017, but it would not allow me to comment on that thread, instead it instructed me to ask a new question. The thread: Re: password field automatically filling with little dots, and other problems ever since installing El Capitan
Thus far, I have yet to see a viable solution to what is obviously plaguing more users than just myself. If anyone from Apple can take a moment to respond, I have no doubt, we would all appreciate it.
I have already done the following:
- Replaced the batteries.
- Cleaned the keyboard.
- Rebooted the system.
- Turned the keyboard off and back on.
- Disconnected the keyboard through preferences, and reconnected it.
- I have yet to slam the keyboard on my desk, but that step is coming…
