Use My Old Password in Big Sur

Apple released the new MacOS, Big Sur, AKA Bug Surprise.
After upgrading to the new OS, I was pissed off by the new features:

Lock the screen and re-sign in, I was prompted to change password! My password is a 6-digit simple password, and it required my new password with compex combinations.

Thank God! There’s a solution.

  1. Start Terminal;
  2. Type follow command:
    pwpolicy -clearaccountpolicies
  3. You will be asked to enter your password for your admin Profile.
    ⚠ Terminal WILL NOT show the password as you type it.
  4. You’re all done! Now go to System Preferences -> Users & Groups to reset your password.
