If you are asked to enter an administrator password in OS X and you get a message that the password you entered is incorrect, there are a few things to try.

  • Make sure the administrator password you’re using is correct.
  • Make sure you use the same capitalization you used when you created the password. Passwords in OS X are case-sensitive, and you need to enter them exactly as they were created.
  • If you forgot your password, you may have entered a hint to help you remember it. Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Users & Groups, and then click the name of your account. Click Change Password to see the hint you used.
  • If you still can’t remember the administrator password, you may be able to reset it. See this Help topic:
