    Problem setting up the Apple ID in Mac users & groups

    Trying to setup my Apple ID on the Users & Groups option which is present in the System preferences, the moment I click SET it asks for password so I selected Enter and it gives the error message as “You entered password incorrectly”. How to resolve this now?

    If you don’t have a password and wanted to set your Apple ID to Users & Groups in Mac then just follow the steps which are mentioned below,

    STEP 1: Come out of the previous window which you were in that showed the password incorrect message.

    STEP 2: Now in the left end of the Windows there is a option which is called as “Click the lock to make changes” -> Select that option.

    STEP 3: Now when it asks for password simply click OK.

    STEP 4: It will show up the Apple ID input to be set which you can provide and continue.
