    Ive had my late 2009 iMac Password Protected for years, but since upgrading to the newest OS, it doesn't
    ask for my PW anymore.
    I Googled this, and the instructions were:

    System Preferences
    Security & Privacy Tab
    General Tab
    Require PW after sleep or ScreenSaver
    Show all

    But now, when I click on the Apple Logo, and then System Preferences....I see NOTHING about Security & Privacy or any of the other subsequent tabs.
    Something changed.
    Can someone please tell me how to PW protect my iMac?
    Thanks in advance.

    When you go to Apple menu/System Preferences - what DO you see along the top row of preference panes?
    Should be (from left to right)
    General
    Desktop & Screen Saver
    Dock
    Mission Control
    Language & Region
    Security & Privacy
    Spotlight - and finally
    Notifications.
    And, 4 more rows of preference panes, more or less
    What do YOU see?
