Setting Up or Changing Your Authentication Questions



Your authentication questions are used when you forget your password. Successfully responding to your questions will allow you to set a new password.


Your authentication questions are set up initially when you activate your MacID, however, users who activated their MacID prior to the implementation of Identity and Access Management will need to set up new authentication questions and answers.


Note: If you have not set up authentication questions, you will be prompted to do when your MacID password expires.


Step 1. Log into https://maciam.mcmaster.ca with your MacID and password.
