How to set your MacOS password less than 4 characters

How to set your MacOS password less than 4 characters 1

I don’t want secure password for my desktop. Instead I use just two letters for quick typing. I can change password in terminal by running:

passwd

But terminal gives me: Failed global policy "com.apple.defaultpasswordpolicy" Password change failed because password does not meet minimum quality requirements

Here is the solution.

Open your Terminal and write this

sudo su

Now, input your password then write this

pwpolicy getaccountpolicies

and,

pwpolicy clearaccountpolicies

now you can change the pass less than 4 characters.

passwd

Enter your password.

I love to contribute to the WordPress Community. I am always happy to meet new peoples in the WordPress community and see how I can help them achieve their goals. When I am not online and WordPress, I love to play football, travel, riding the bike and attend Meetup/WordCamps! If you’d like, you can help me to attend WordCamps around the World.
