Changing Your Keychain Password

Important Note:

If the Keychain is causing a lot of pop-ups after changing your password, restart the computer. Then, enter your Skidmore username and new password again. When the prompt asking for the Keychain "Login" password comes up, enter your old Skidmore password. Once you are logged in, follow the steps below to resolve these pop-ups.


 1. Go to the Applications folder. Find the Utilities folder and open it. 



2. Find the Keychain Access application and run it.



3. Go to the Edit menu on the Menu Bar.


4. Choose Change Password for Keychain "login"...



5. Type your old password in the first box, and your new password in the second and third boxes.



6. Click on OK, and you are done.
