I forgot my Family Safety password. RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I set up Family Safety on my daughter's laptop, and I have forgotten the password. I did not write it down, and I've no clue to what it is. I can't find how to reset her laptop, either, and I cannot turn off Family Safety since her account is not an admin, is there any I can turn off the Family Safety and remove my account on her laptop, without being an admin?

  • I need an up-to-date way to remove it, I have Windows 8. I searched through the information on that post from 2009 and it was no help.

  • So you mean the account is the only admin account? In this case you can use a password reset disk to reset the password. Assuming that you have one at hand you can follow the steps below to solve the problem:

    Step 1: Insert the password reset disk into the locked computer.

    Step 2: At the Welcome screen, click the link "Reset password".
    Step 3: When the "Password Reset Wizard" appears, click "Next".
    Step 4: Select the drive where the password reset disk is located.
    Step 5: Type in your new password and password hint then click "Next".

    If you don't have one please turn to a third-party tool for help. I recommend Windows Password Recovery Tool to you. You can find it on CNET.
