Never seen this before, on laptop after boot from shut down, said "Keychain cannot be found log in"

And then option was to reset everything for keychain... which cannot be undone...

So I did not choose yet.
What is ramification? Did not ask to reset for just log in, I don't think...

I'm not so conversant with Keychain. Does effect stuff on desktop too? The laptop use is more limited I think.

Laptop, Desktop, or mobile is completely irrelevant. The Keychain stores all of your passwords - for WiFi, email accounts, websites, app logins, etc.

If you reset it, you will have to enter all of those over again as needed, by hand.

Thanks S. glad I did not do it.

But why did it not offer to just reset the log in?
