How to change your OC password in Mac OSX.
If you are off campus please do not use this answer, instead you can change your network password here. (this will not change it on your laptop, only on MyOC, BB, OC email, etc...)
You cannot change your computer log-in password while you are off-campus. If you change your OC network password via the web interface while you are off-campus, it will work for your web-based authentication (e.g. webmail, blackboard, or MyOC), but your computer login password for both Mac and Windows will remain the same until you are on campus again.
Open System Preferences and go to Users and Groups
1. Open up System Preferences
2. Click on Users and Groups
Select New Password
- Enter your old password.
- Choose a new password. Find the Password Requirements here.
- Verify the password you chose.
- Click Change Password.
Congratulations, your password should now be changed!
