How to track / find/recover the lost or forgotten manager password in sage 50 -Free Service

User log on "Manager" is the default inbuilt Full Rights password in sage 50 (sage line 50). As usual it comes blank at the time of installing the software, then you can enter any password for it by going to settings / change password option in the menu.

Rights and privileges of user Manager cannot be changed, It has all the rights including creating new users. If you forgot the manager password there is no way to change it or remove it. If you know the password of  any other users you have created subsequently, you could continue working with the software with specified rights for that user, but creating new users or changing right for any user not possible. Further, if the rights of the other users have been severely restricted you will be helpless as you wont be able to work with many advanced features available in the sage 50 system.

Further, If a person who knows the password has been disgruntled with you, it is always better to find and change the password immediatedly as they may able to go inside the program and do anything inside.

We can assist you to find your Manger password free of cost if you can send a backup to us.
