When updating LR Classic to the new version I get a prompt to enter Chromium Safe Storage password, where can I find this as I've never heard of it?

Wat does this mean?
"Adobe Lightroom Classic wants to use your confidential information stored in “Chromium Safe Storage” in your keychain."
This message came up on my screen as I was trying to update to the new LR Classic.
When I tried to click the box in Keychain to reveal the passcode, a beach ball appeared that wouldn't quit. I tried to reboot my computer and try again, but kept getting the same.
Finally, Apple Support suggested I click Deny - which was only way to proceed.
Anything I should know or do about this?
Thanks a lot.
I'm encountering the same issue. Just upgraded to LRC Release 11.0 and as soon as I did I started getting the same message. Clicking Deny is way to proceed to Lightroom. Really annoying. Happens every time I start LRC. Running macOS 12.0.1.
I've moved this from the Using the Community forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the LRC forum so that proper help can be offered.
This permission is used to grant access to the embedded map.
Disclaimer: speaking as Lightroom user here, not an engineer.
Lightroom has a built-in map module, which uses Chromium – it’s an open source browser engine which Google uses for building its Chrome browser. Chromium stores information (and I am guessing here) – the zoom ratio of the map, layers shown, etc.
A new version of LR will contain a new version of Chromium, which wants to access the old, stored information created with the previous LR map module. Therefore, your confirmation is needed (which can be granted by entering your login password).

But which password are they after? And where do I retrieve it from?
Thanks a lot.
The password to you keychain. Typically the password on your mac user account.
This doesn't seem to be the case. I've entered the password for my Apple account (which accesses my passwords) and even my Adobe PW just to try. Neither works.
Also, why am I dealing with this if I don't even use Chrome?
