Yeah, so you want to unlock your Mac air without entering a password, right?

Did you link your Apple ID on your mac?

Got it
After entering the wrong user password three times, are you asked if you want to restart your computer to view the password recovery options?

Customer Replay

I enter my password, so I’ve never been asked to restart my computer
I would like not to enter my password each time.

Can you help it remember my password?

In order to do so just follow the instruction below:

  1. Click the Apple icon in the top-left corner of the screen and select "System Preferences."
  2. Select "Security and Privacy."
  3. If needed, toggle over to the "General" tab.
  4. Untick the box labelled "Requires Password."
  5. Enter your Mac's password in the pop-up window.
  6. Confirm your choice by clicking "Turn off screen lock."
