Hi,

I have a problem with adding the linkedin account on System Preferences/Internet Accounts.

I have the exact same problem and I have tried many troubleshooting options that led to no resolve.

I also have issues adding Facebook as it keeps asking for my password again and again and is never truly enabled.


Steps I tried:

1. Delete LinkedIn relevant entries from Keychain access

2. Delete the whole of my Keychain and created from scratch

3. Disable iCloud Keychain sync and enable it again

4. Delete files from Library\Preferences


None worked.

This appears to be happening on all my iCloud connected devices except my iPhone X. I am repeatedly promoted for passwords for both LinkedIn and Facebook on all my devices. I have ensured my passwords are correct by checking them in Keychain Access. I have no difficulty logging in to the services directly via their web interfaces using the same passwords. I am assuming that the new MacOS version that is still in beta will address the problem, but in the meantime, this is extremely annoying.

I have the same problem and it started at the end of May. I've read on other boards it could have had something to do with the implementation of GDPR, and the timing is indeed interesting. (see here: macos - Internet Accounts spontaneously forgets passwords and I can't reauthorize them - Ask Different) For me it's in Facebook. I noticed it when i could no longer share photos directly out of the Photo app into FB. I tried deleting Facebook in Internet Accounts (repeatedly). I also deleted all FB-related keychain entries. I tried changing my FB password. Every time I re-add FB in internet accounts it takes my password, but then the notification banners appear at upper right saying I will need to enter my password. I click continue but nothing happens, and the FB Internet Account continues not to work.


I have to believe this is a very heavily used feature on Macbooks, and so I would think Apple would treat the matter with due consideration.
