The keychain is a secure place to keep passwords. All Mac apps are encouraged to use it for their own passwords. So it sounds as if an Adobe app is trying to use an Adobe password. Sounds fine to me.

Sorry for the delayed response and inconvenience caused. As Aandi correctly mentioned that Keychain is a secure place to keep the password, and the Adobe app is trying to keep the login password for Adobe.
If you want to add the password and keep getting the pop-up again, please check for any pending updates of Adobe Reader from Help>Check for updates, reboot the machine and see if this brings any difference.
If you still get the pop-up, try the following steps mentioned below:
- Please enter the computer password and click on "Always allow".
If above does not work, then please try the following steps:
- Go to ‘Keychain access’. Select 'login' from left side pane > search for 'v4.services.acrobat.com' from the corresponding list > double click on it > select 'Access control'.
- If there’s an entry of 'com.apple.Webkit.Plugin.64.xpc' delete it by clicking on '-'. Press 'Save changes' and provide your password.
3. Then manually get the plugin added. For that please click on '+' and traverse to the location /System/Library/Frameworks/WebKit.framework/Versions/A/XPCServices and select 'com.apple.WebKit.Plugin.64.xpc'.
4. Press 'Save changes' and provide your password.
If this also does not work, then try:
- Open keychain. Right click on 'Login' from left-hand pane and select 'change settings for keychain login'.
- Make sure both the options are unchecked as shown in the images below. If the options are checked then ‘login’ keychain might be getting locked after some time and that’s why it’s asking for the password to unlock it whenever it needs to access ‘login’ keychain
Let us know how it goes, and share your findings.
