Question
How do I permanently allow GlobalProtect access to the System keychain so that I do not have to enter an administrator's credentials each time I log into my Mac?

Environment
  • GlobalProtect Agent.
  • MAC-OS


Answer
There are instances, after installing GlobalProtect for macOS, you find that after logging in each time, you have to provide an adminstrator's credentials in order to grant GlobalProtect access to the System keychain. A dialogue window like this opens up:

Sometimes, after providing that credential, you may see this additional dialogue window, for which you would have to enter the same credential:

You can permanently address this and never have to enter the credential again by editing the Keychain password entries for GlobalProtect
  1. Open Keychain Access
  2. Select the System Keychain
  3. Select the Passwords category
  4. In the list of passwords, you will have to edit each GlobalProtect-related entry
  5. For each entry, select Access Control

Select the option to Allow all applications to access this item and then select Save Changes. You will have to do this for each GlobalProtect password item.
