In this post, I’ll explain to you that how can you enable root user in macOS. As we already know that macOs is Unix like Operating System, enabling root user in this OS will give you more power to perform any kinds of stuff.
If you need to move files from another user on your Mac or do system-level fixes, your admin account will quickly run out of juice. This is why, like its UNIX brethren before it, your Mac has an account named “root” that can do just about anything.
Steps to Enable root user in MacOs X
Step 1:- Click on Apple logo on the Left upper corner and select System Preferences
Step 2:- Now click on User and Groups from the System Preferences
Step 3:- After that Follow the Instruction to gain the Access by entering the Administrator Password
First click on the icon and Enter your password to gain Access for modifications. Now click on Login options and then click on Join
Step 4:- After that, Click on Open Directory Utility
Step 5:- After step 4, Directory Utility will be opened. Then click on Enable root user form the Directory Utility Dashboard
Step 6:- Now set the password for your root user whatever you want
So after you have entered the password for the root user, you can access the root user via terminal.
