Hi,

My father bought a Mac and made himself an admin (we have various accounts on a computer). Very often to change some preferences on my account or to make a needed update install I need his password. Asking him to do it all the time is very annoying... And he wouldn't give me the password.

Is there a way to get to know this password without his knowledge?


Maybe there is a free keylogger that can help?

I am quite desperate! I am close to setting up a surveillance spy camera to get it! Please HELP!


Thank you.
