How to Change the Lock Screen on macOS Mojave – Guide

Apple who delivered the macOS 10.4 Mojave update that accompanied some features and improvements. It took us more than seven days to find and change most of them. Something I did was adjust my MacBook Air lock screen running Mojave. The entire action took just two or three minutes, and my MacBook Air’s lock screen currently looks more personalized than at any point in recent memory. Fortunately, Mojave continues to offer more ways to change the look of the lock screen and options from the original screen, which was provided out of the box.

Change lock screen background image

By default, Mojave has set the background image for the desktop screen and the lock screen to be the same. This means that changing them should be quick and easy. First of all, you need to decide on a good quality background image. This image can make your screen look clear and sharp. Ideally it should be in full HD or at least 4K resolution. After choosing a background image, follow these steps in how to change login and lock screen background in Mojave:

If someone sees it, how can they identify the owner and return it to you? One solution is to leave a personalized text message on the lock screen. That way, anyone willing to return their MacBook will know how to Contact you. A personalized text message is also a fun way to leave a message for your annoying sibling or a sneaky co-worker. To define one, follow these steps:

Many Mac Mojave users prefer to use a screensaver. Then they configure the system to automatically go into sleep mode after a few minutes of not being used. While there is nothing wrong with this setting, it is important to note that standby or screensaver will not activate the lock screen. This means anyone can quickly get into your Mac and gain access to your system and files. Since we don’t want this to happen, we suggest that you set a password requirement on your Mac so that when it goes into sleep mode or after the screensaver appears, it asks for a password. To do this, follow these steps:
