How to Reset your Keychain


After resetting your password via the Mac OS X install disc you may get errors accessing the keychain. This is because the keychain is still using the old forgotten password.


  1. Click the magnifying glass in the top right of the screen.
  2. Type Keychain.
  3. Click on Keychain Access.
  4. When the program is open, click Keychain Access (top left of the screen) then Preferences.
  5. Click Reset My Default Keychain.
  6. Enter your current logon password (if any) then click OK.
