    Reset Mac Password – with the installer CD/DVD

    Resetting a forgotten Mac password is easier if you have an installer disk handy, we have covered this tip before on it’s own:
    • Boot from the Mac OS X installer disk by inserting it into the Mac and holding down the “C” key on boot
    • Select your language preferences and then under the “Utilities” menu select “Password Reset” (it may say “Reset Password” instead, depends on theversion of Mac OS X)
    • Select the hard disk that the forgotten password is on, then select the username of the forgotten password, you’ll then be asked to select a new password
    • Reboot as usual from the hard drive, using your newly reset password as the login!

    If you have another administrative username (such as the Open Directory (OD) Administrator (diradmin) username, then you can use that to reset the password.

    Hi friend,
    No need to worry you can easily reset your password.

    One way to solve your problem is, if you have two admin accounts then by using another one you can reset your password for that admin account.

    If you have original account i.e., the first and immediate account you set up after installing mac OS, you can reset all the other admin accounts.

    If you don't have multiple admin accounts then install mac os not necessarily exact one you have but nearest version is enough. Hold ctl s then a drop down box pop up. Select password reset option for your OS.

    It solves your problem.

    Regards,
    Mahesh.

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem it is:-

    There is no way to change your password without logging in into your computer.

    If you have any other account then you log in to that account.

    There you can change your other account password.

    This the only process you have to do.

    All the best........

    when Mac user forget the password by chance ,then put in trouble and can't access their Mac device.
    but there is wonderful solution that you can recover your password and can access your Mac by recovery.
    By simple setting , you can change your password or reset your password.but for that setting , you should know your administrator password compulsorily.
    If you have administrator password ,then you can change or reset your password and can use your Mac device easily.

    Recover the password in OS X


    --> Go to Menu and then select "system preference"
    --> now select "view" menu and choose "user & group"
    --> now click on lock button.now enter the administrator password
    --> select username whose password you want to change
    --> select "Reset password or change password"
    --> Enter new password in both the password blank field
    --> click on "reset password button or change password"
