I have a MacBook Pro given to me by my IT department. The macbook has 2 accounts:

  • Local Administrator
  • My Account

Today, when I turned on the Macbook, my account didn't appear in list of accounts to sign into. The only account on the MacBook is the Local Administrator, and I don't have its password.

Is this a bug, or have I done something wrong? I don't remember deleting anything or even remotely playing with anything that could do this.

I am using OS X El Capitan 10.11 with a 2015 MacBook Pro.

    Since this is a managed system, owned by the company you work for, you should contact the IT department. – user3439894 Aug 7 '16 at 16:00
  • Does "Other" appear? – haykam Aug 7 '16 at 16:16
  • @Peanut No. only 'local adminstrator' – Honey Aug 7 '16 at 16:17
  • What appears when you click Local Administrator? – haykam Aug 7 '16 at 16:17
  • just a textField to enter the password for it. – Honey Aug 7 '16 at 16:19

Fixed! Had to go IT department.

The IT Department didn't enable/setup Filevault properly. They just had to login with their credentials and set it
