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:


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


pwpolicy clearaccountpolicies

now you can change the pass less than 4 characters.


Enter your password.
