I was unable to log into a Macbook Pro the other day where I work because I did not have the admin password and so I looked up how to bypass this. I came across these steps across multiple sites so I figured I would document this little how to.
This was tested with Catalina.
Hold Command and S then turn on the computer
When recovery comes up open the terminal by clicking on Utilities menu and then Terminal
Type the command to mount the hard drive.
Mount -uw /
You will need to cd to /Volumes
Type in ls -l
It will show you the partitions.
Change directory into the bootable volume
Run this command
Then you will need to run this command.
Reboot the system and it will come with the new user wizard and allow you to create a new admin user.
