Hi Guys,

I have a 2012 iMac, and have set it up as me as the administrator and my wife as a standard user.
My wife has to login with a password, as she wondered if this can altered to login without putting the password in?

I have looked into the user account, but cannot see anyway of clearing the password.
Have also made the effort of doing a search on here, but nothing relevant to my enquiry came up :(

Thanks for any help :D

Click login options and choose automatic login for her account.

Yeah, I did that, but after a reset it just went straight to her account :confused:

Is that normal....we just wanted it to boot up with the option of either of us to login. It was like that before we put a password to alter something.

My apologies for the dumb question, but this is my first iMac and the OS X, although I do have a iPad and iPhone, but there slightly different :cool:

Thanks for your reply though :D

Not sure if this only works for admin accounts, but if you change password, you can just leave the new password slots blank.

Ah! I did wonder if just to leave it blank, but does it not keep asking till you type some characters ? Will have a try later.

Thanks also to you,for your reply :D

For me, it just asks, "You did not enter a password for this user account. Are you sure you want to do this?"
