Question: How do I turn off a Firmware password?

I'm trying to reset my NVRAM on my Macbook Air because I cannot access Messages or Facetime. The normal commands were not working, so it is suggested I might have a firmware password on. I don't know what that is, but I think I may need to turn it off so I can fix the thing that will fix the thing that will fix the thing. Thank you!

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.1.x)

Forgotten Firmware Password


If you lost or forgot your firmware password - Apple Support.


If you forgot your firmware password, schedule an appointment with an Apple Retail Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider. If you plan to visit an Apple Retail Store then make an appointment at the Apple Genius Bar for service. If needed find an Apple Store - Find a Store - Apple.
