    Hi there

    I have used the Guest User account on my Mac since I got it, out of convenience and for quick logins. I have forgotten one of the passwords I need for my Virgin Media account. I have it saved in Safari.

    However, when I try to open my passwords or access them via Keychain, the computer asks me to enter my password. Guest User doesn't have a password. When I try to press enter the dialogue box just disappears and doesn't let me do anything.

    How can I resolve this?!

    Really appreciate help/advice with this

    Thank you!!

    Which keychain are you talking about? The one on your main account? Guest account doesn’t have any data stored, it will all be deleted once you log out.

    That was my understanding of how Guest accounts currently work. Wonder if the OP is on an older version of Mac OS?
