OS X Yosemite :: Change FileVault Password To Match Login

Dec 8, 2014

When I first setup my OSX laptop, my filevault and user login password were the same. At bootup, I only had to login once (with my username and password).I recently changed my OSX password but my filevault / disk encryption password was not changed. Now I have to login twice when I boot up (first with my old pass, then with the new one).Is there any way to change the disk encryption password so I can be in sync with my login password?I tried Disk Util > File > Change Password, but it is greyed out.

OS X :: Password Works To Login - Change Password But Not To Install Software

Dec 8, 2010

My MB Pro has 1 user login, it's never been changed, re-created, etc.I can login to the laptop no problem, I can goto the User control panel and change the PW and it shows the single user as the admin.However I can't install software. It comes up and asks me for the password which is then rejected.Beyond reloading the OS not sure what options are. Did a permissions repair but no other luck.

OS X Yosemite :: Automatically Login To IMac Without Password

Dec 5, 2014

Recently brought iMac in for software upgrade. now 10.10.1 

After i got home, i realized that the iMac now always asks me to login with my password (which i do). But i would prefer not to have to login/put in password every time. just want my iMac to open as it always had. 

I assume i go to system preferences/users & groups. i see i am the current user/administrator. When i click "change password" it says: "*** is using an iCloud password to log in and unlock the screen.

do you want to change your iCloud password or stop using your iCloud password to unlock this mac AND CREATE A SEPARATE PASSWORD?" 

Don't want separate or any passwords. Do i just want to click the "change iCloud password" button? Ijust want to log in without a password. How do i do that?

OS X Yosemite :: How To Disable Password Login At Start Up

Dec 10, 2014

Since installing Yosemite 10.10.1, every time I turn on my MacBook Pro I have to Select User and then login with my password. I don't want this, since I'm the only user and it wastes time. This didn't used to happen before installing Yosemite. I can't find the button in Security and Privacy that turns this off!

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Turned FileVault On But Mac Hangs After Login

Mar 22, 2012

I've just turned File Vault on on my MacBook Pro 13".I've followed all the steps: noting the FileVault Key, storing it into Apple and restarting my Mac.When my Mac has started, it has asked me for my login, and everything goes OK until the moment my desktop appears. At that moment in time, my Mac hangs, and I get the "colourful beach ball" and nothing seems to happen.I do have a backup on my Time Machine and I can format the disk and start over, but I don't understand why my Mac is freezing just because I've turned FileVault on.

OS X Yosemite :: FileVault Is Not Finishing

Dec 4, 2014

I have a problem with FileVault on my MacBook Air mid 2013, with yosemite 10.10.1 installed. On initial setup I turned on encrypting and it finished in an hour. But then I realized it uses too much energy and tried to turn it off, but it said the encryption is not finished and i need to connect to the power adapter. I've done it, but nothing happened. Even though the progress bar shows it's finished, I can't now turn it off.

OS X Yosemite :: Force FileVault To Stop?

Dec 4, 2014

I've got a MacBookPro that's a couple of years old, but hasn't had any problems before - and then I updated to Yosemite. Since then it's been sluggish, stuttering and with a spinning rainbow wheel every five or ten seconds. It's got to the point where it's unusable - you click, you wait, then wait, then it reacts. Sloooow.  

It's a 2.4GHz Intel Core i5 model, purchased in Summer 2012. 4GB of memory - and I've deleted everything off it, all my files and any third party programmes have gone now. On a 500GB hard disk, there's 468GB free now. It's practically got bats flying around in there it's so empty. 

Apple suggested a PRAM restart, then an erase & install, which I've done a couple of times. No dice. Then I saw that FileVault is running, trying to encrypt everything on the computer. It's stalled at around 20% or so, and hasn't changed for days. You can't switch off FileVault while it's encrypting, so I'm pretty stuck at the moment; I can't leave it running because it renders the computer unusable, and reinstalling won't stop FileVault either.  

how to switch off FileVault while it's running, and how to disable it in future?

OS X Yosemite :: FileVault Caused Mac To Stop Working

Dec 12, 2014

As soon as I enabled file vault my Mac became unusable, with the cursor being stuck on the loading icon. I left it like this for many hours thinking it was just the encryption process after coming back to my mac the next day it was still like this so I decided to shut it off. After shutting it off I tried turning it back on again. The apple logo appears with a loading bar at the bottom. It loads slowly before getting half way and stopping to show a black screen with a white circle and a line through it.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Unable To Login To FileVault-protected User Account After Network Migration From 10.6?

Jun 29, 2012

I just used Migration Assistant to move my files from my iMac to my new Macbook Pro. I didn't know about the Filevault problem so when I tried logging in, I got the error message and I am unable to login to my account (the only one on the computer). The support page says to make a root user, but how can I do that when I can't even log in to my account. I dont have a disc copy of Lion I can use to start up with, only a copy of 10.6.

OS X Yosemite :: FileVault Encryption Is Stuck - How To Stop Or Make It Finish

Dec 2, 2014

I upgraded to Yosemite. On the setup screen after installation, I foolishly said "yes" to "would you like to use Filevault to encrypt your hard drive." Since then, it has been stuck at the encryption stage. It keeps going back and forth between "estimating time remaining" and "X days remaining" 

I'm unable to turn off Filevault at this stage. It tells me it needs to finish encrypting first. When I run a system report, it shows this: 

The really annoying part is that the CPU and the full-speed fan are consuming battery power like crazy. I go from 100% to 0% in less than an hour and a half. So I need to be tethered to a power outlet most of the day.

how can I stop it, or make it finish the encrypt?

OS X Yosemite :: FileVault Encryption Paused Because It Thinks Power Adapter Not Connected

Dec 4, 2014

Was activating FileVault on a new MacBook Pro until I received a message that it paused because it thinks the power adapter is not connected...even though it was. I unplugged the power adapter for about 12 seconds and then plugged it back in. But the error message persists. FileVault hasn't completed its process and not generated an encryption / recovery key. If I reboot do I risk being unable to access my Mac?

MacBook Air :: Forgot FileVault 2 Password - How To Reinstall

Sep 4, 2014

I have a recent Macbook Air that has file vault 2 installed. I reset my password this morning, but cannot remember it at all this afternoon. I have all my files backedup so I am not worried about data loss. So I went to do a reinstall from the recovery partition and its asking me for my password... which is the password I do not know. I also do not remember putting the recovery key down anywhere (stupid I know). 

How can I just reinstall Mavericks on the system now?

MacBook Pro :: Can Change 17" Screen Resolution To Match

Apr 20, 2010

the 13.3" glossy screen resolution?

I was at the Apple store for almost an hour this morning jumping between anti-glare and glossy MBPs. To my shock, I thought the smaller real estate produced much sharper, easier to read text on a glossy screen, but I love the 17".
