Don’t forget to update your Keychain password too.
The Keychain is the place where your Mac saves all your passwords so you don’t have to type them over and over again. Although you updated your netID password via the website, you will still need to update your login Keychain too.
The steps to update your Keychain password and access all your currently saved passwords is listed below. Please note that you will be prompted to enter your previous netID password.
If you don’t remember your previous netID password, there is an app called “Keychain Reset” in your Applications folder. This will clear all the current Keychains in your account. Note: “Keychain Reset” is easier to use but you will be prompted to re-enter your previously saved passwords.
To Update Keychain Password:
Open “Keychain Access” located in Applications/Utilities.
• Go to “Utilities” under the “Go” menu in the Finder. Go to “Utilities” under the “Go” menu in the Finder.
• Find and open “Keychain Access”.
- Choose Edit menu “Change Password for Keychain “login”…”.
- This will prompt you for your OLD WCC password. This was the password you used before changing it on the WCC website.
- Select “OK”
“Change Keychain Password” window
- Type your OLD WCC password here also for Current Password.
- Type your NEW password under New Password and then type it again for Verify.
- Select “OK”
That should do it!
