    Good day everyone. I was trying to change my MacBook password and on the field for entering new password I mistakenly left it blank and pressed enter. Now I can't login to my computer it says I need to enter the keychain password to login. Please I will really appreciate any help I can get from all the bright minds here. Thanks you

    While you're doing the below, if you get the keychain error, just click 'Cancel' whenever you see the prompt to enter the keychain password.

    1) Open the Library by clicking the 'Go' menu in Finder, along the top bar. Hold down the 'Alt' key, and Library will be visible.

    2) Navigate to the folder called 'Keychains'. Open this folder.

    3) Delete all folders you see in the Keychain folder. You won't be able to empty the Trash, so don't worry about trying to empty it.

    4) Restart your Mac.

    5) If it prompts you for a keychain at the start, click 'Create new keychain'

    You'll have to re-enter saved passwords and stuff like that, but this should fix the issue.
