OS X V10.7 Lion :: Guest Account Disabled But Still Shown On Login Screen

Apr 6, 2012

I just noticed that on my login screen, "Guest" appears even though it is disabled. I have not tried to run it, but when I do click on it I get the message that the computer will reboot into the "Guest" mode. I stopped at that point. This can't be normal.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Login Screen Shows One User Account?

Jun 2, 2012

A machine we have has 4-5 user accounts on it. The login screen GUI just has one user visible and I can't figure out how to log with my user ID and password. There aren't many places to click & I've tried pretty much every thing I can think of to log in as a different user. Am I missing anything obvious? Is there a chance that only certain accounts are enabled for logging in after a reboot?

I just noticed that my User Account Picture does not appear on my Login Screen in OS X 10.7.4 Lion. It never has and I just noticed on another Screen shot of someone else's login screen that their login picture is showing. I kind of like it. Can anyone tell me how to get it to display there? My computer was originally set to autologin when I first got it but I set it to require name and password.

MacBook Pro :: OS Lion Couldn't Access Guest Account And New User Account

May 24, 2012

I bought this new MacBook Pro a month ago.  When I try logging into my guest account, it froze.  I had no other alternative but to get out of it by pressing the power button.  Then I tried open a new user account to see if it also has the same problem.  Unfortunately it did have the same problem - froze after I logged in.  I had done a harddisk check, there seemed to be no problem.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Remote Screen Share Login With Own User Account Interrupts Other Users?

Mar 1, 2012

Apple writes in its OS X Lion screen sharing description that: "You can remotely log in to a Mac with any user account on that computer and control it, without interrupting someone else who might be using the computer under a different login." 

Unfortunately, this is not true in my case: When other users are using my 2011 iMac for webbrowsing or DVD watching and I log in on my own acount from my macbook pro, video will stop playing, the spinning wheel sometime appears. The system does not really crash, but wil respond very slowly and in fact is not useable until I as remote user stop my activities or log out. This is not how it should be, especially as the iMac's CPU, memory and network load are very low according to activity monitor's information.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Specify The Login Items For The Guest Account On Mac?

Mar 30, 2012

I would like to be able to configure what applications start when it's logged on using the guest account.  For normal accounts you would use the login items option in Users and Groups but this option is not available for the Guest user. 

I saw this thread from 2010 - [URL] so downloaded the server admin tools for 10.7.2 but the guest account didn't appear in the user list so I presume this has been changed again since Snow Leopard.

OS X :: Unable To Auto-login To Guest Account / Safari Wants To Use Keychain Login

Jan 6, 2009

I work for a company that has several Macs available for customers' use. These are basically demo-machines that they can play with, and at the end of each day, the machines are wiped and rebooted.

The way we do this is simple: the machines auto-login to the Guest account, which will wipe the account at the end of the day. Well, getting a few new Macs in this week, I simply copied over the entire Guest user account to the new machines to avoid reloading all the demo content, preferences, etc. And truthfully, the machines have been working great.

Except one thing. The computer keeps giving me that annoying message that says "Safari (or Finder, or System Preferences, or anything!) wants to use keychain 'login'". And asks for the login keychain password. Well here's the thing: the Guest accounts don't have passwords!

So I looked up a little bit on this topic, and did things like... Went to "Keychain List" in the Edit menu of Keychain Access, and deleted both the "login" and "system" keychains. No help. I went to Preferences in Keychain Access and said "Reset My Keychain". When doing this, however, it asks for the new password for the login keychain.

The problem with this is that I cannot leave the field blank! The Guest account doesn't have a password, so how am I supposed to not create a password?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Cannot Login To User Account After Migrating To New MacBook

May 18, 2012

I just migrated my old MacBook running Snow Leopard to my new MacBook running Lion. After successfully migrating, I am presented with a login for "Guest" only. That is the only account available to me for some reason. When I try to enter every password I can think of, I am given the password hint "guest". Entering that does not work. I've tried the usual Apple public passwords too. What is going on here? What happened to my migrated user account? I went through the entire setup configuration of Lion and even entered and submitted my personal data to Apple for registration. I just say, not impressed with Lion so far ...

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 :: Guest Account - Can User Save Files Where They Are Not Deleted

Dec 22, 2008

Is the guest account 100% safe for the most part as long as they aren't running a file with a known virus or something?

Say a guest is making a text file or something. Can they save it where it's not deleted etc?

I don't want them to be able to do that at all. I want to make sure there is nothing they can do or store crap anywhere

OS X Mavericks :: Missing Login Keychain For Guest Account In 10.9.4 Lab Setting

Sep 3, 2014

I have a lab of ~30 MacBook Airs running OS 10.9.4.  We have MS students login using the Guest account with no password.  The Guest account folder is deleted after every logout.  Starting this week we are seeing keychain popups saying:  A keychain cannot be found to store "Safari." or "Chrome."  selecting Reset To Defaults makes no difference. 

Opening Keychain Access is a slow process, but it does eventually come up.  There is no Login keychain.  And the Local Items and System Roots keychains are locked and do not open with a blank password. 

Frankly, I don't want this guest account to be remembering any URL related password.  So is there a way to shut down or highly restrict the Keychain functionality?  If not, what do I need to do to fix or prevent all these popup messages and system pauses as the MacBook figures out for the nth time that Keychain isn't working as it expects it to?

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Disable Sleep Button At Login Screen?

May 1, 2012

Is there a way to disable or hide the sleep button at the login screen? I am trying to send updates and/or commands from ARD.... But the end users are putting the computers to sleep by pressing the sleep button. This is causing the ARD updates/commands to fail. The computers and severs are all Lion OSX. If I can disable the sleep button at login then I can send the updates/commands. I normally only do the updates/commands when there is no user logged in.So I am not concerned with the case where the user is already logged in and puts the computer to sleep. I have already setup an MCX in WGM for the Energy Saver.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Guest Account Bug Deletes User Data

Oct 12, 2009

Reports of a potentially critical Snow Leopard bug that can erase a user's account data have continued to surface since the operating system's debut [Updated with Apple official comment].

Since Mac OS X 10.6 launched in late August, numerous reports online have detailed the issue, which is triggered by logging in and out of a guest account on a Snow Leopard machine. Upon logging back in to their regular account, users will find that it has been wiped of all data.

The issue has prompted numerous threads (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) on the Apple Support Discussions, with reports suggesting the issue cannot be reproduced with any exact certainty. Apple has yet to publicly acknowledge the issue.

"When I logged into my MacBook Pro this morning, it was as if I had logged into my Guest Account and not my standard user profile," user parshallnet said. "No icons on the desktop, the desktop wallpaper was the default 'space' photo and not the one I had assigned, no documents in the docs folder, apps behaved as if I'd never opened them before."

The issue was initially reported when Snow Leopard first launched, but complaints have grown as adoption of the platform has continued. Monday, Engadget highlighted the issue.

A month ago, CNet detailed a potential fix for the issue, which is reportedly caused when users have had a guest account enabled for login prior to the install of Snow Leopard. The easiest way to avoid the issue is disabling the guest account.

If afflicted by the bug, the home folder can be restored, though without a backup, the loss of data is likely permanent. If a user has Time Machine running, they can restore their Snow Leopard installation while holding 'C' at startup and choosing "Restore from Backup" from the "Utilities" menu.

Update: In a brief statement, Apple acknowledged the issue Monday evening, according to CNet

"We are aware of the issue, which occurs only in extremely rare cases, and we are working on a fix," a spokesperson said in a prepared statement.

Since its launch in August, Snow Leopard has been received with positive reviews and strong sales. A quick update, Mac OS X 10.6.1, was released soon after, but apparently did not provide relief from the guest account bug.

Mac OS X 10.6.2 is currently in beta and only available to developers. It has nearly 150 general focus areas.
