How to Set a Password on a MacBook


Mac OS X allows for separate protected user accounts on the computer. Users may set a password to protect the files and settings contained within their user accounts, or simply to keep their data private. After the password is set, the user account is not accessible unless the set password is entered correctly into the computer.

  • Click the "Apple" logo in the upper-left corner of the screen.

  • Click "System Preferences."

  • Click "Accounts."

  • Click "Change password."

  • Enter the old password, if any, and enter the new password into both the "New password" and "Verify" boxes.

  • Enter a password hint, if desired, and click the "Change Password" button. The changes take effect immediately.
