Enable Jamf Connect on Mac to ensure passwords in your deployment meet your organization's security standards and to sync passwords with a user's identity. View the status of your Jamf Connect configuration on a device from its device dashboard. Jamf Connect is disabled by default.

Jamf Now supports the menu bar app, but does not support the login window.
