Hello friends, my name is Adam and i am an user of Mac os x since one years. I have stored all of my confidential data in my Mac computer and for the security purpose i put a password to login the computer. I just want to know that is there any way to know about the Mac os x failed login attempts so that i can get the information if someone else try to login my computer.
Hi Adam, the problem you discussed is really very good and every user should be awared about it. Let me tell you that you have reached at the right place as this post will provide you the all details about your problem. Yes of course it is very important to know that is there any other person is attempting to login my computer and in which time. In order to know about Mac os x failed login attempts you have to go to the setting and make some options enable. The all log information about all the login attempts and its timing are being saved in the location /var/logs/secure.log which you can not see without the permission of admin. On the other hand it is suggested you that if you ever come across the situation of data loss from your Mac computer then use Mac data recovery software.
