To access any password Keychain has been storing for you

1.
Find the item in the list of “Passwords,” as shown on the opposite page.

2.
Double-click that item. You will be asked for your Keychain password, which is the same as your login password. If you are the only user of the Mac, it's the password you assigned yourself when you first set up your Mac, the Admin password. A window like the one below appears.

3.
Click in the box to “Show password.” Your password appears!

You can create a new Keychain: Go to the File menu and choose “New Keychain….” Give it a descriptive name and a password you will remember. This Keychain will appear in the top portion of the sidebar, as shown on the opposite page. You will need to know that Keychain's password if you want to access things in it!
