This is probably one of the reasons that accessibility features are disabled by default in Mac OS X.

What stops a malicious app asking for keychain access and automatically clicking the button itself?

I think it was endlessly looping through the keychain over and over.

I will try the other script you linked too.

Maybe there is some issue with certain keychains that makes the scripts get stuck. I wonder if it’s worth trying the alternative “dump” script that I linked to at the bottom of the post, to see if it has luck dumping out the contents of your keychain where you could then search the dump file manually.

Yes I have years and years of stuff in there. I gave up and had to force reboot.

There has to be a better way.

If Google Chrome wants to access a keychain item’s contents that it did not put in the Keychain, or which has not previously been authorized as “Always Allow”, then the alert will appear.
