What is the password that I need to enter when I install EPSON software on my Mac OS X machine?


  • Mac OS X
  • Driver installation
  • Password prompt


This password is the login password you configured for your machine during the installation of Mac OS X. You simply need to enter this password and the installation will continue. This is a security feature of Mac OS X to ensure that only authorised users can install software.


If you haven't set a password on your computer, we would recommend leaving the field blank and pressing OK. This can be successful if your computer doesn't have a password set.

If you cannot remember or need to reset the password please contact Apple or your computer vendor (if they installed the system for you) for assistance.

Apple have the following support article available on their website: Mac OS X: Changing or resetting an account password
