Keeping BPS passwords in sync with Mac

Brett Allard Updated by Brett Allard

This article documents how to keep all your BPS passwords in sync with your Mac laptop password. When your password is reset through Access Boston or the Service Desk, the password will not sync to the Mac as well.

  1. Make sure your device is connected to a BPS network, such as BpsStaff.
  2. After logging in, you will be prompted to put in your ID number and BPS password (the one used with Gmail and Aspen) with Enterprise Connect, detailed below.
  3. After you fill in the information and hit enter, you will see a screen asking you for your "login" password if your two passwords are not in sync. This is the password you have been using to login to your Mac from sleep or at the login screen.
  4. After entering your login password, you will get a message that your passwords are in sync. From that point on, you will be using the password you use to log on to Gmail or Aspen as your password for your Mac. At that point, you can close the window for Enterprise Connect by clicking on the red button at the top left corner of the window.
For a short video demonstrating the process, watch Syncing Passwords.
