How to reset Company MBP

Hello guys.

I'm wondering if there any way that I can save one MBP. I was on a company and the company went bankruptcy, they told me to keep the computer but I cannot reset it since it's password protected and I cannot access the tools on the booting since it's password protected.

Are there any options to make a hard reset?

Thanks in advance

Update (01/27/2022)

Unfortunately I don't have access to computer. It's like it's blocked or disabled and the password it's protected.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Sadly, you need the magic key to get into this system! The company iCloud locked it and it also appears they have via iCloud locked the system if it was working when you had it using your user account and password/TouchID

It’s just a nice paperweight now ;-{

Your only hope is see if any of the IT staff within the now defunked company can help you.

If your Apple ID is locked or disabled

If you can't unlock your Mac Clearly you don’t own the system so this is not an option!

If it is password protected and FileVault is enabled, but not iCloud locked (so it’s asking for an admin account password, not an Apple ID password) . Boot into recovery mode (press and hold cmd+ r at boot). When it’s on the screen asking for an administrator account password , click the Apple menu in the top left corner and there should be an option to Erase this Mac. One that’s done you can reinstall the OS and start all over.

If it is iCloud locked, or was enrolled in any sort of device management through the business, it may still ask for a password or credentials in order to activate the device once it was erased. If that is the case, the company would need to unlock it for you in order for it to be usable.
