Fast User Switching and passwords

Post by Tim Lanc » Mon, 11 Jul 2005 23:04:02


I *do* know the importance of passwords. However I am in the process of
trying some things and it sure would be convenient not to have to enter
the passwords as I am going back and forth among users. I can not seem
to find a way to avoid this.

Am I doing something stoopid? Is there any neat little shareware app to use?

I thank you for any ideas.

I wonder if automator could do it.

Never used it yet.

If you made the passwd the same as the username,
you could at least copy-paste it.

In article <2005071009040216807%lance1012@hotmailcom>,



You didn't say what system you are running. I have no problem 'fast
user switching' with Panther and no passwords on user accounts. It just
switches, no dialog asking for passwords at all, (after the initial user
login which does bring up a dialog asking for a password, but I just hit
'return' for that). Once the users are logged in, I can switch from
user to user at will with no further dialog.

I don't know if it is any different with Tiger.

D'oh! I forgot to give any specifics (Tiger) and forgot that indeed you
don't need to set a password. Sheesh.
