After Reinstall macOS Due to Blinking Folder into question mark, something changed I boot it up and asks me to login first before booting up I tried to Reset NVRAM/PRAM but it won't make changes Is it kind of the exploited Version?

  • It seems you have set a firmware password. See support.apple.com/en-us/HT204455 – lhf Aug 15 '20 at 1:05
  • You enabled FileVault. It uses your login credentials to encrypt the drive and will appear as a login screen before you boot. The only way to disable this is to disable FileVault which I don’t recommend – Allan Aug 15 '20 at 4:16

Go to System Preferences » Security & Privacy and then click on the "FileVault" tab.

If it shows that FileVault is enabled, then it is normal for it to ask for your password when you first boot the computer.

If that is not it, please let me know as a comment.
