If you equate giving apple your password to typing the admin credentials, then you can’t do this without a privilege escalation / security vulnerability. Those usually pay $25,000 to $250,000 so if anyone has one - get your money from apple before posting here how to hack your mac. https://developer.apple.com/security-bounty/payouts/ If you just need us to ...
