Privacy of your system is very necessary, especially if you are have important professional or personal data inside it. People like me are very much insecure about their systems. Since, I have been using Windows laptop, I was well aware of its security. But being a new user of Macbook, I have to Google things to learn its system settings.

Recently, I felt like my User account’s security has been breached. It was really needed to change the password of my Macbook’s user account. The problem was, I didn’t know how to do it. If you are also facing such issue for your Macbook or Mac systems, I recommend you to follow below mentioned steps.
