Try to leave it blank and just proceed. Sometimes stores leave it blank. If not contact Apple. If you are still within the 90 day phone support they should be able to help you.

Unfortunately, since Mac laptops run in the background UNIX or Linux, there is no generic password. Even the hacking software on the internet would have a hard time cracking the password.

Just contact the store where it was purchased. If they can't help you, then contact Apple and see if there is a way to bypass the password.

My uncle installed k9 web protection in my laptop, how can i get rid of it since i dont know the password?


Solution

Please follow the instructions below to uninstall K9 Web Protection. Make sure you are connected to the internet before uninstalling K9 so your license can be released. If this is not possible, you can continue to uninstall, but you will need to request a new K9 license if you want to reinstall K9 in the future.

  1. Click Start
  2. Click Control Panel. If you can't see this option, it may be under "Settings"
  3. Click Add or Remove Programs
  4. Find Blue Coat K9 Web Protection in the list of programs and click it once.
  5. Click the Change/Remove button.
  6. Click Yes when you are asked whether you want to completely remove K9. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO UNINSTALL WITHOUT A PASSWORD. By design, K9 will block all Internet access should one attempt to uninstall without using a password. Attempts to modify K9 at a registry level will have the same effect.
  7. Enter your K9 administration password and click Uninstall. If you forgot your password, click the "Forgot Password..." link to have a temporary password emailed to you.
  8. When asked whether to reboot your computer, click Yes

After rebooting, K9 will be completely uninstalled.



You can find many solutions over the net but dont try it else the internet will be blocked.. just ask for a new password and they will mail you... You need to click on forgot password.
