In Mac’s OS X which is based on Unix, it is difficult to change password compared to Linux and Windows. But nothing is impossible. Now I will show you how to hack password in Mac OS X.

The easiest method would be to use Ophcrack on this as it works with Mac and Linux in addition to Windows. However, there are other methods that can be used, as demonstrated below.

If Mac runs OS X 10.4

Then you only need the installation CD. Insert it into the computer and reboot.

When it starts up, select UTILITIES –> RESET PASSWORD.

Choose a new password and then use that to log in.

If Mac runs OS X 10.5

Restart the computer and press COMMAND + S. When at the prompt, type :

fsck -fy

mount -uw /

launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.DirectoryServices.plist

dscl . –passwd /Users/UserName newpassword

That’s it. Now that the password is reset, you can login.
