If your MacBook Pro is shared among multiple people in your home, friend circle, or colleagues who use their own user account to access the computer, you may find yourself in situations when any of the users forgets their password.

If you hold an Admin account on your MacBook Pro running Mac (macOS High Sierra for this example), you can easily reset the forgotten account password.

Here’s how:

  • Get to the Users & Groups windowClick the Apple logo from the top-left corner, click System Preferences, and click Users & Groups from the System Preferences window. This opens the Users & Groups window. From here you can create or delete user accounts and groups, configure your MacBook Pro to automatically login to a user account you specify after booting, etc.
  • Enter Edit ModeClick the Lock icon at the bottom of the window, enter your password (Admin account’s password) in the Password field, and click Unlock. This unlocks the list of other users and groups your MacBook Pro has. From this point onward, you can add or remove new users and groups, and make other modifications to those objects.
