How to change ichat password on your Mac

What is ichat? ichat is an app that built into Apple's OS X operating system (such as Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks, 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.7 and lower). It is similar to Skype that enables you to chat with friends online via text, voice, or video. iChat is associated with other social account such as AOL Instant Messenger (AIM), MobileMe, Google Talk, iCloud, or even Gmail instead of using its own username/password.
