I am suddenly being presented with the prompt “Local wants to use your confidential information stored in “Chromium Safe Storage” in your keychain” on macOS Sonoma (screenshot attached).
What does this mean? Why am I all of a sudden being prompted? Will Local still function if I choose “deny”? Is there a way I can prevent this from being asked in the first place?

So that message is basically asking for permission to read and write encrypted user data.
On macOS, the record appears in Keychain Access if you need to review it:
