    Hello everyone,

    I want to lock my mac at startup so that nobody can access it.

    I would simply put a password on the pc startup, but I do not know how to do it.

    I search the forum and I have not found the solution .. if you could help me.

    Thank you very much for your kindness

    If you use manual of mac and and search this topic in that, you'll find the answer with step wise procedure, I think it's: System Preferences -> Accounts and Set Login on start up or something like that. Check it out.

    Enable password protection in startup of mac

    Do the following to enable password protection in startup of your mac:

    Go to System Preferences -> Security -> General -> Disable Automatic Login -> Close Preference Pane

    Now in the next reboot of your Mac, you will be prompted to enter your username and password to login in your account.
