How to add text to the lock screen Mac

Perhaps not everyone knows, but on the lock screen macOS, you can display any text or message. This is undoubtedly a useful function and may be useful in some cases. For example, if you want to leave a reminder to other users or in cases when the MacBook is lost. What do you need? Today will tell.

Actually, there are two ways to place text on the lock screen. Look at each of them.

The first way is through the “System settings”.

  • Started directly the parameters themselves.
  • Go to the “Protection and security” -> “General”

  • Find the “Show message when screen is locked”, activate this option.
  • Set the right text. For example, you can add your contact information, if suddenly your Mac is lost.

You’re done! Now when you go to the lock screen we can see we typed the text.

The second way is through “Terminal”.

  • Run the command line in any convenient way.
  • In the window that appears you will need to enter the following command:
  • sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow Loginwindow
