  4. Jon says:

    The ways to reset a Mac password that you discussed were generally correct. But it can get more complicated due to a few different valuables: FileVault, macOS version, whether the option to reset with iCloud was enabled, and more. Ifthe legacy feature to sign in with iCloud is enabled get ready for a half-dozen attempts of toggling wi-fi, restarting, and trying this or that password until something works.

  5. Jon, you’re right. I was simplifying it a bit. I intend to write a detailed article on the subject because there are so many passwords and ramifications when they’re lost. Then you add 2FA to the mix.
