  3. Click the lock icon in the bottom left corner to unlock the settings. Enter your current Mac account password and click Unlock.

  4. From the list of users on the left side, select the account you’ve forgotten the password for and then click on Reset Password button.

  1. Open up the Terminal window and type the following command:
    sudo passwd account_name

  2. Once pressing Enter, you’ll firstly be prompted to enter the password of the current admin account you’re logging into. After that, you need to enter the new password twice for your target account. If you’re running macOS Mojave, the old password is required before you can set a new password.
