What do you mean by "get rid of all passwords"? Email? User login? Website passwords? I don't know what it is you are trying to accomplish.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

You can't. Even if you could, would you REALLY want your personal email and website user accounts accessible by anyone who knows your email address?

I am using a Mac Mini and I get asked for Password only when I try to download an App(I think???). Under Settings I have the Password box unchecked. It is a nuisance. I would like to eliminate this Password requirement. Don't know of other times it asks for a Password. It started asking for a Password when I tried to download Flip4Max and then wouldn't accept my Password. I cleaned out all the Flip4Max files and finally got it to accept the Password but don't really know what did it.

Are you downloading from the App Store? If so, then the password is a security check, so that random people aren't (hopefully) downloading and purchasing apps from your account.

If its when installing something from the Internet, it's to prevent random people from installing software, so that only the computer administrator allows it, it prevents bad software from getting installing, unless you personally want it installed.
