Resetting Your Keychain Password

If you've recently changed your network password, you may begin receiving "Keychain Access wants to use the 'Login' keychain..." dialog boxes frequently while using your Mac:

Fortunately, fixing this is simple.

1. First, navigate to your Utilities folder on your Mac, and open the Keychain Access application.

2. Next, choose Edit > Change Password for Keychain "login"...

3. In Current Password, enter your old password (hint: This would be a password you recently used to log into your Mac), then the password you recently chose as your new network password. If you enter the wrong current password, don't worry: keep trying previous passwords until it accepts it.


4. Click OK.
