Wipe and Restore Locked T2 MacBooks Using DFU Mode

When u say at the end it will wip it but won’t reinstall with out password wick password u on about ?


  • The user account password -- if a MacBook is activation locked you can wipe it but you can't reinstall the OS unless you know the user password.

  • Ok thank u ☺️

  • Is it the user password for the account it deleted or one I use now

  • It didn't delete the account -- if the machine is activation locked then it is still bound by the user login/password it is locked under.

  • In other words, there is no way around activation lock on MacBooks unless you jailbreak the machine. You can wipe it, but without the account password, you can't reinstall the OS and reuse the machine -- it's a brick.
