Hold for Authentication error screen grab

The Hold for Authentication error is a bug that occasionally happens on the Mac version of the PridePrint client. When you try to print, you get asked to log in to a non-PridePrint screen and then you get an icon of a printer in your dock. If you click that icon, you get a screen like the above where your print jobs say Hold for Authentication. There are two ways to fix the issue.

Fix 1 - Run PridePrint Reset


If you've had PridePrint installed by Hofstra University staff, running the PridePrint Reset program in your Applications folder will fix the error.

Fix 2 - Reinstall PridePrint


If you don't have PridePrint Reset or if running it does not work, please stop by the Student Technical Support Center with your computer and we will reinstall the software for you.
