fedora keeps re-asking password

Hi there. I recently upgraded from F25 to F26 using the dnf method.
Ever since the upgrade, I have this issue:

After I login, just before the desktop appears, I get two prompts:
"Setting rfkill requires privileges, enter password:"
and
"Setting networking requires privileges, enter password:"

so I end up entering the same password 3 times before I can use the machine.

How can I stop this from happening?
Many thanks, -turgut

it's blueman network manager plugin causing this. so if you don't use bluetooth you can remove blueman.

if you do use bluetooth, remove it anyway and install blueberry instead

That might be some issue with GNOME Keyring. GDM should unlock it automatically when logging in.
