Mac OS X passwords

The three to concern yourself about:

Admin

The primary user’s password. Gives access to the entire system, except the private areas of any secondary users.

Master

Makes it possible for hapless secondary users to reset their own passwords. Note: Don’t forget this one because it can’t be re-created!

User

Secondary users need their own password to log on, giving them restricted access to their part of the system.
