    The answer if you never put one in is to create one. Here is how

    Forgot Your Account Password

    For Lion/Mountain Lion

    Boot to the Recovery HD:

    Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the COMMAND and R keys until the menu screen appears. Alternatively, restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager screen appears. Select the Recovery HD and click on the downward pointing arrow button.

    When the menubar appears select Terminal from the Utilities menu.
    Enter resetpassword at the prompt and press RETURN. Follow
    instructions in the dialog window that will appear.

    Or see Reset a Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Password, OS X Mountain Lion- Reset a login password, and
    OS X Lion- Apple ID can be used to reset your user account password.

    For Snow Leopard and earlier with installer DVD

    For Snow Leopard and earlier without installer DVD
