Fedora 21, every time, when Google account syncing, pop-up with password request is occured (with "remember" option checked). Very annoying :( What can I do, except of delete account from online accounts? I type password and it's synced, again and again... If I deny the request, no sync is occured, if type wrong password - rerequests the password. How to remember password in system?

I had same issue a few times, it's not fedora specific but it's gnome specific :). You need to make sure that seahorse works well. Seahorse is the default keyring in gnome. Open Passwords and Keys this is actually seahorse you will see on the left Passwords tab, and under it Login. Click it and make sure the lock is unlocked! I believe this to be a bug it wont always happen but sometime it happens. It's not a real solution, is just that it worked for me, you should give a few restarts and see if it happens again. Otherways try to reinstall seahorse sudo yum reinstall seahorse
