i have mac 11,3 and i would like to remove the password XXXXX i dont know any more - could i just use the original disks that came with mac to remove all passwords
Hi My name isXXXXX hope i can help you.

Yes you can remove the password. If you don't remember it, then you can reset it with the Mac OS X installation discs.
  • Insert the Mac OS X installation disc 1 to your Mac.
  • Turn off your Mac
  • Turn it back on and immediately hold down the C key on your Keyboard.
  • This should boot your Mac directly into Mac OS X installation screen
  • Choose your Language and click Next button.
  • Choose Reset Password from the Utilities menu
  • Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.Select the user name of your original administrator account
  • Enter a new password XXXXX leave it blank and Click Save.
  • Restart your Mac

Let me know if that didn't worked...

Would this remove the password XXXXX chain password XXXXX that safari is also asking me when i want to update software?
You must select the Username of the account you want to reset the password. Did you mean Keychain Password ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
yes - i am sorry - i do not know what is that
Keychain Access is a Application that stores all your passwords of your Mac like login passwords, applications passwords, website passwords etc. You can reset the Keychain Database if you have any trouble with it.

  1. Open Keychain Access from Applications > Utilities folder
  2. From the Keychain Access menu, choose Preferences.
  3. Click Reset My Keychain, which is under the General pane.
  4. Authenticate with your account login password (its your administrator password).
  5. Quit Keychain Access.
  6. Restart your computer.

Let me know how it goes...
