The NoMAD software is automatically installed on all Macs deployed by WPI ITS as of February, 2020. After changing your WPI password, logging in to NoMAD will allow you to change the password for your local Mac account.

NoMAD Password Management

The NoMAD software should automatically run on login. If your WPI password and the password for your local account are congruent, then you will be signed in to NoMAD. The NoMAD icon will display how many days there are left until your password expires.

Synchronizing A Password

If the software recognizes that your WPI password is not synchronized with your local account, NoMAD will fail to start automatically and you will be prompted to update your password.
