MacBook Pro :: Remove Username And Password After The Screensaver?
May 31, 2010
Whenever I leave my Mac for a few minutes I go back and find the screen saver running. I move the mouse the login window pops up and asks me a username and a password. How can I get rid of it! Its annoying me!
Factory refurb came with Leopard already installed, didn't include disks, and never prompted me to create admin info. Really just want to install Flash... Everytime I try to install it asks me for my admin username and password. Username is always filled in as "user", but password is blank.
Three weeks ago I have bought and installed the new Lion Server (10.7.3) (previously Lion) on my Mac Air (via App Store), but returned it the day after through the Contact Portal of App Store. Since then my Admin Username and Password are not working anymore and the Lion Server is still existent in the system.
When trying to install ANY kind of software or make a change that prompts username/ password, the box shows up grayed out and will not allow me to enter any text. Can anyone give insight into what is causing this and how to fix it?
I have installed an IP-printer on my Mac. To print something from this printer, I have to use an username and password. I wrote in what I thought was my username and password, and selected that my Mac should remember this.
Unfortunately I wrote the wrong username, and now, even though I've deleted the printer several times and added it again, I still can't print anything. The box that I wrote my username and password do not pop up.
So how do I delete the printer and make it forget my username and password?
Info: MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013), OS X Mavericks (10.9.5)
when surfing to websites where a username and password is required, the first time you fill in these data keychain access will ask to remember the password.
If U click 'never for this website' keychain access won't ask this again.How can I change this setting? I'm trying to autolog into facebook but it won't work.I keychain access I added it manually but it still doesn't work.
I've recently purchased a 2nd hand Apple Powerbook G4 A1104 and the previous user details and password are still on the system and to reset it has asked to install the Mac OS disc.The powerbook suffered minor damage to the aluminium casing causing it non-economic to repair, therefore i had successfully tendered for the item.
I don't have the disc - is there any way that the username and password be re-set without this disc?
Is there any way to make Safari only remember the username and not the password of a website when using Autofill? I've noticed that Firefox does this and Facebook does this in Safari when disabling "keep me logged in" (maybe a cookie feature?), and this is the exact behaviour I want.
I use 1Password and thats great, but I'd love to just type my password and automatically have the username show, and not keep having to type in my 1Password keychain's password.
I have a problem connecting to the wifi from my macbook pro and my iphone. I have a D-Link DI-624 router. When there?s no password, both connect to the internet just fine. However, when I enable a WEP network key I cannot connect because it keeps asking me for a username and password, not the network key. Which username and password is it asking me for?
I have a G4 Powerbook that I bought 2005. After it slowed down, I decided to perform a complete install. I backed up all my data on an external harddrive , reinstalled and it worked fine for a week. (My data is not on the external hard drive anymore because I transferred it to the laptop as I had to empty it for another back up project). So in brief, my data is not backed up anymore.
My notebook suddenly crashed, I restarted it but it wouldnt turn on. I then performed archive and install, restarted it, it asked me for my username and password, I entered them, but it didnt take it.
I then changed my password again from utilities, but it still wouldnt take it. I called apple support and they were clueless. The discs I used to perform the installation are the same ones I got with my laptop when I bought it. When I try to change the password in utilities, it would not give me an option to chose username, but only to change the password.
I have my HP photo smart printer plugged into my time capsule. I never had any issues printing with my last laptop (MBA) but i just got a new 13" MBP and can't print. MBP sees the printer on my time capsule via Bonjour, but when I try to add it to my printers i get a dialog box that says: "type the name and password of a user in teh "_Ipadmin" group to allow AddPrinter to make changes." I have no idea what the "_Ipadmin" group is and i've tried all my normal user names & passwords but it tells me they are all wrong.
I did a fresh install of OS X - but now when I try to use Software Update, Start Disk, Accounts, etc. It gives me a dialog box asking for an Administrator Name, and password. I never got asked that before. And when I type it in, it wont work saying it is incorrect! I entered the name and password I use on my main login screen when it starts up (which works fine). Is this the same as the Administrator name and password? I have never set up an Administrator name and password separately.
A couple years ago i used my macbook for school and they installed their own administrative account, so i had 2 accounts, one for them and one for me, and i was always able to install updates and my username and password always worked until now.
i realized that their administrative account is gone and somehow got deleted! Now every time i go to install something my username and password doesn't work, and I'm 110% sure its the correct combo.
What do i do????? i cant access anything! i have everything backed up in time machine on an external, if i put my restore disk in will i loose leopard, cause that was installed after i bought my mac, and how do i re-install everything from my backup?
I have had this problem since starting at my current office. (Over 16 months.) I inherited a computer from a previous staff person. Each of my computers have been Macs. (3 different computers in 16 months.) We are mostly a Mac computer office but our Active Directory and File Server are both Window PC's.
Whenever I try to log in to the file server I get the request for the my network user name and password. The window already has a user name but it's not mine. It is the user name of a previous user of my original computer (From 16 months ago.). I say original computer because I now have my thrid computer which I migrated from the first and second one. I'm sure whatever the problem it is has come along with each migration. I have looked in my Keychain Access and found the network password item for the file server. When I opened it my username and password are correct.
I am trying to write a generic script that will mount a disk upon log in of a user So far I have this: (which works for a specific user:)
try mount volume "smb://MyUserName:MyPassWords@ServerIAmPointingTo" end try
I have pointed the script to my log in prefernces so it runs automatically when I log in. Is there a way to do this with a generic username/password? If I wanted to give this script to 100 of my co-workers, they would all have to modify the code to their credeintals. But is there any defaut usernames or passwords that AppleScript will take? Maybe something like: mount volume "smb://default:default@ServerIAmPointingTo" ...? My goal for this script is to have it run on peoples desktops at work to point to the same server, since I work in IT. But, I don't want to modify each script for each unique person.
The Apple Mac computer is setup with rEFIt and boots into Windows XP.I would like to boot into the Mac, however the username and password don't work. I have tried rebooting and pressing Ctrl+S, but the command line interface didn't open? URL.... apart from a full installation.I don't know if I can access the retail DVD.
I was getting rid of some files of my desktop of the computer I use almost daily so it would not be huge in memory like images, and hew other items and I tried putting them in my trash so I can get rid of them, but it said well this:
I'm not the admin on this computer far from it, only a regular member.
Mail on my Pro suddenly says incorrect username and/or password. Resubmitting password does not help. Mail is fine on my iPad and Phone. I can also log into the mail's website with no issue. Until now mail has never been an issue on my Mac. I tried deleting and re-adding the account. Get the same message when it tries to verify the login during setup.
in tiger, whenever iChat was launched, it asked for a username and password but now in leopard, when iChat is launched it automatically logs into my account. multiple people use iChat on my computer and i just want to know if in leopard there is a setting to bring up that box that asks for sn and password like in tiger and panther. i've been messing with the preferences and i cant find anything.
Running whatever the latest is, but stuck in the login screen. It doesn't show my username, only "other". Repaired disk permissions and nothing!!! Still stuck in "other"... No usernames or passwords work.
I have close to 30 sites in my keychain, but one will not remember login info. When I had first joined the site, it worked fine. Unfortunately it had not synched my login info using the cloud to my iPod touch. I had of course forgotten the recommended suggested password (letters, numbers & symbols), and so had a password request sent to my phone. Again unfortunately the cloud did not resend the password to my computer, so I just ended up creating my own easy to remember password. It was recalling the strange passwords, but wouldn't put my password into my mac. It also began to stop asking to save passwords from that site altogether. I ran keychain first aid, & I trashed the Keychain Access.plist. I didn't reset my Default Key Chain button, because I don't to loose all of my saved info.
I put in the incorrect username/password when asked to by iPhoto when i upgraded to Iphoto11, i want to send a photo from Iphoto, now it will not send as it states i have the wrong combination. Where oh where do i reset or input the correct details? Error message states username/password are incorrect...... but option to reset or change them or try again.
