“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

@IanC.: It is in "advertising mode", which is a potential security concern.

comment Is my password vulnerable to recovery using my Apple ID?
No. The question is "Is my password vulnerable to recovery using my Apple ID?" That is: Is it currently possible to use password recovery given what I've described?

That explains why the option to allow reset is gone. The question is whether the functionality is gone.

comment Is my password vulnerable to recovery using my Apple ID?
@Buscar웃: Right, so that may be why the ability to change the settings gone (putting aside that the first example was also a FV2 system). But because the choice is gone, does that mean the functionality is too: does it mean (as I hope) I can't reset the password using the Apple ID (or just that I can't change whether I can)?

comment Is my password vulnerable to recovery using my Apple ID?
My Apple ID is fine and set for all other purposes as normal (calendar, mail, store, etc.). But setting it for password recovery is a different thing. There's no place to do that now (and no way to see whether it's set or not) that I can see.

comment Is my password vulnerable to recovery using my Apple ID?
@Buscar웃: I don't know. How would I find out? There's no control for setting it on Users & Groups > Password. I think it usually appears above the sections I've illustrated; but that area is blank for me.

For me the issue is TeX (via MacTeX), Git, and Python (managed with pip).

So basically they're just being moved around, not examined or tweaked, so I could delete and restore myself to save time (next time)! TeX alone had thousands of files (it seems).

I've split that (and the original "what's it for") part of the question off into a separate one.
