Security considerations prior to hardware service
Authored by: ghay on Aug 11, '06 09:51:20AM

From an Apple Tech a *LOT* of the problems I see are software, and may not reproduce in another user account.

In any event, if the tech doesn't have the password he will simply reset it to something to allow his access. It is worth noting that Apple does not guarantee data safety during repairs. If a tech deems it required to wipe and re-install that will happen. Service providers are allowed to charge for backup services, so I would just backup at home and wipe your important data as shown here.
