    So um... I really want to know my parents password but they have password. And whats really stupid is that Safari and Finder are the ONLY applications I can use. I know how to change password but then they will find out. So is there an application that I can download that will tell me their password the next time they log on?!?!?!?!

    The only advice I can give you is STOP trying to guess your parents password. Simple :)

    There is a password on the machine for a reason, no?

    Buy your own Mac, and then lock your parents out!

    There's several reasons they your access limited/blocked. Porn for one, unless your 18 or older, then why don't you have your own computer? If you're a minor then your parents probably don't want you getting on any instant messaging apps or installing potentially untrustworthy software on there. While there are keyloggers you can download, you still need admin access I'm sure to install them in the first place...

    There are a number of ways that spring to mind, but, firstly this isn't a hacking site, and second there's likely a legit reason you don't have an admin password.

    Give us your parent's number and we'll ask them for you.

    We've already told your parents about this, and they're going to pretend they don't know a thing just to see what you'll do.

    If it were Windows, I could tell you 5 different ways of getting hold of the password without changing it or blanking it. However, since this is Mac, I am not sure of any utility that READS the password, as opposed to BLANK/RESET.

    dude, you are so screwed. They have site logging software installed and are currently reading your post. Is your first name "Ben"?
