Updating Keychain Password on Mac
Posted by , Last modified by David Strong on 20 June 2019 09:00 AM

Changing your myPlymouth password will cause your Mac password to become out of sync. The following procedure should be done after a myPlymouth password change if you are a Mac user. Best practice is to change your password and follow this procedure while on the campus network.

  • After changing your password in MyPlymouth, log out (but DO NOT Restart) of your macOS device.
  • When presented with the login screen, login using your new password.
  • You will then be prompted to either “Create a New Keychain” or “Update Keychain Password.” Click “Create NEW Keychain ” button. 


The next step is to update your FileVault password.

  • Open Finder > Applications and launch Self Service
  • Click the lock icon titled “Update your FileVault Password.”



                                                               
Note: If this is your first time using this app, macOS may ask if it’s okay to run “jamfAgent.” Click yes to proceed.

  • Enter your new password when requested.
  • Click OK.
  • Wait for the process to finish. Self Service will present a green check mark if successful, or a red X if unsuccessful. If unsuccessful, please contact the Help Desk at 603-535-2929 or email helpdesk@plymouth.edu.
