Resetting Your Default Keychain Password

Mac Users should update their keychain passwords any time they update their Goucher password.  This step is necessary for Mac users if they want to avoid losing any other saved non-Goucher passwords that are stored in their keychain.

To Reset your default keychain password on Mac OS X 10.4, Mac OS X 10.5, and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard or later:

1.       Open Keychain Access, which is in the Utilities folder within the Applications folder.

2.       From the Keychain Access menu, choose Preferences.

3.       Click General, then click Reset My Default Keychain.

4.       Authenticate with your new Goucher login password.

5.       Quit Keychain Access.

6.       Restart your computer.
