How to Create, Disable and Change a Bios Password

In this tutorial we will guide you on how to Create, Disable and Change a Bios Password. You can easily disable a bios password by leaving the password spaces empty.

To learn more about bios passwords, follow the tutorial given below.


Step 1 – Enter the bios

First of all, let’s enter the bios by pressing the F2 key, or any other key depending on your system manufacturer.

Once you have entered the bios, go to the Security tab and over here, you will see the “Set User Password” option and the “Set Supervisor Password” option. You can use the boot options to boot your computer with the user password but if you want the bios permissions, you would need the supervisor password configured as well.

Step 2 – Set the password

In order to do so, let’s first set the Supervisor Password. Once the new window opens up, you would be required to enter the new password and retype it once more for confirmation and in this way you can create a bios password easily.

Step 6 – Enter password to access bios

Step 7 – Change password

To change a bios password, all you need to do is go back to the security tab and access the supervisor password option. Once the new window opens up, you will be required to enter the current password and type in the new password twice.

Step 8 – Remove bios password

To disable the bios password, simply open up the set supervisor password option once more and this time, leave both the new password fields empty. This will disable the bios password option.

Once you restart the computer and access the bios, you will notice that it will not prompt you with a password request, and instead will load the bios window directly.

And that’s it.
