    Several times a week I get a pop up asking me to enter my iTunes password. This doesn't happen on my wife's iPhone 7s plus nor either of our iPads. All are running the latest iOS.

    IS there a setting I can change? Any other ideas?

    If I remember right you should not do that.
    Think I have read about this before and never typed my password when I got that pop up.
    Hope you soon get a better answer.

    You can try to sign out of your Apple ID.... restart the device... then sign back in.

    I did as you say droidprincess but that did not solve the problem.

    Restart your iPhone, that might help.

    Your issue could also have something to do with the Wi-Fi connection. Did you have any problems recently?

    No problems except for this. I will turn wifi off to see what that does.

    Try a soft reset of the phone. After you log out. Then log in again

    I had that issue recently. You have to sign out of iCloud, then sign back in.

    I tried that and when I did not need to enter the ID for over a day I thought the problem was solved. However, it started again. But thanks for your post.

    You’re not the only one that this happens to trust me! It’s happened to me before.

    Try going to appleid.apple.com, log in and reset your password... then sign out of device, restart device... then sign back in.
