Question about Computers & Internet
My son past-way a few mo's ago and I happen to locate his macbook os x. At first I did not requirer a password to get in and I would go in daily to see his many pictures. Then one day a window pop-up said there wasn't a vault code, do I want to enter one I agreed being his pictures are now priceless. Went to take a shower and now I am locked out. Please help me unlock it so that I don't lose any of his pictures.
This is going to be painful but you can not remove the password from the file vault. You can remove the system password but that will make anything inside the file vault inaccessible.
If you know the system's master password you can still get into the vault.
If you don't know it the only other thing you can do is try a brute force attack on the password. If a strong password was chosen this could take an extremely long time.
The files you need to do this are here (VFCrack, but I do not have a mac so their use is beyond my scope of expertise. Hopefully someone here will be able to tell you how to compile and run them)

The Safari web browser stores a large amount of information as a result of your browsing. This not only includes cache and cookies but also saved names and passwords, download history, search keywords, browsing history and more.

Before doing this, please be sure that you definitely want all of this information to be erased.
