Login Item Added Notification Keeps Showing Up On Mac? (Fix)
Is the Login Item Added notification showing up on Mac every time you open an app after updating to macOS Ventura? Notification is recurring even if you keep the app added to the Login Items in System Settings?
Login Item Added Notification Error
This issue has been reported by guitarmarketing:
“The problem is that i’m getting ‘login item added’ notification every time i open apps like Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. This seems to be a bug.”
We’ve found similar complaints on Reddit:
“Everytime I open an app on Ventura it adds it to “Open at Login” Why?”
How To Fix Login Item Notification Reoccurring
Apparently, these alerts are triggered by certain extensions that might come with a launch agent that’s not optimized for macOS Ventura.
For example, it seems that the Microsoft Edge app triggers the Login notifications when the Clockify extension is in use. Remove the time tracker extension to stop the recurring alerts! (Thanks Create-An-Account for the fix.)
Fix: Another extension that’s triggering repeated Login Item notifications is PayPal Honey. (Thanks twingeofregret.)
Turn it Off in Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge to get rid of the annoying alerts.

Happens with Flickr Uploader as well.
Thanks for sharing.
I just downloaded the latest version of Flickr Uploadr, and Flickr appears to have fixed the issue. It no longer displays the notification on restart.
Happens with Todoist as well. Disabling the Todoist Chrome extension resolved the issue for me.
Thanks for the contribution Sam. We appreciate it.
The problem seem to be the launch agent causing chrome to add itself to to the login items list each and every time. The notification just makes it even more obnoxious than before, but the problem seem to have always been there. I’m not an extension developer, so I don’t know how to prevent this behaviour, but I assume not every user want their chrome to launch at login every time… especially not if it restores tens of tabs by default.
Thanks for your feedback. Indeed this is the problem. To fix it you have to identify the extension that’s causing it and remove it until it’s updated.
Norton Password Manager as well…..
Thanks for sharing.
it sucks because i have a school account profile of google chrome which requires startup pages and there is no way to turn that setting off in google chrome.
Uh that must be annoying. Not sure what else to suggest at the moment.
Mine is happening with Clippy and it’s not showing up as an extension in Chrome – any other thoughts? Thanks so much!
Clipy isn’t a Chrome extension but it’s calling the same notification function, in a way that is no longer proper according to Apple, that many other apps and Chrome extensions are. Clipy will be located in General > Login Items in System Preferences. Since this app hasn’t had a new release in 4 years and hasn’t had any update on their repo in 2 years… I highly doubt anything will be done about this anytime soon, at least on the Clipy side. Best we can hope for right now is a MacOS update that corrects the issue for this deprecated behavior.
Thanks for the info Brian. Yes, usually apps that haven’t received support for such a long time, won’t be updated now. Let’s see what corrections Apple brings in macOS 13.1 which is currently beta tested.
The Splice desktop app is also causing this notification to pop up everytime i start my MacBook pro up 😭
Thanks for sharing. It must be happening to apps that are downloaded directly from the web and not via Mac App Store?
Thanks for confirming.
I get it with Fing. I don’t have an extension for it, it’s an app. I can’t find any setting in Fing that would cause it, all I can do is turn off all notifications. However, that somewhat defeats the purpose as some of the notifications are around network status issues.
Hmm that’s annoying. I see that the app was last updated 3 months ago. I guess the developers will have to update it with support for the new macOS Ventura features.
