I locked my MacBook using Find My iPhone and now when attempting to start using it again, I cannot type my PIN into the unlock section. Nothing happens. I can't even click on sleep, restart, shut down or the internet options.

I tried Command-Option-R and Command-Option-R-P. Both just came up with a different password screen which I put the PIN into and then they went back to the PIN screen. I have no idea what else I can do.


There are multiple options available.


It sounds like your system has the firmware password set.

You will need to enter the firmware password first, before you can get back into your system and enter the recovery pin.
