Change the User Account Picture
Apple provides about 43 different images to choose as your account photo which is visible at the lock screen and the login screen. You can set a custom photo which could be your picture or anything else. Here's how you can change the user account picture.
First of all, you must add the image you want to put as your User account image in the Photos app.Tip: Using a square image with 700x700 pixel resolution yielded better results to set at the User account picture replacement.
Transfer the image(s) to the Photos app and then follow these steps:
Step 1: Click on the Apple Menu and choose System Preferences.
Step 2: Head to User & Groups.
Step 3: Click on the current User account image, and it will roll out a photo selection menu.
Step 4: Select Photos. Now keep scrolling the left pane containing thumbnails till you see the new images you added at the bottom. Select the one you want to use and hit next.
You can take a picture of yourself using the camera and set it as your account photo.
Step 5: Use the zoom slider to align the image correctly and hit Save when you are satisfied.
Now you can use the Control+Command+Q shortcut to view the lock screen and check your new User account image.
Add a Message or Text on the Lock Screen
MacBooks are lightweight, convenient to carry around, and easy to forget at airports, cafes or conferences. How can one identify whose laptop it is and reach out to the rightful owner? Well, you can leave a custom text message on the lock screen that would help anyone to reach out to you and return your laptop.
Such custom text is also an excellent way to leave cheeky a message for your sneaky sibling or a co-worker. Here's how you can set one:
Step 1: Go to System Preferences using the Apple menu and click on Security & Privacy.
Step 2: Click on the lock icon at the bottom right corner of the window to unlock the setting and enter the administrator password.
Step 3: Check the second option that states 'Show a message when the screen is locked' and click on the Set Lock Message button.
Step 4: Add text in the field, hit the OK button and finally click on the lock icon to lock it back.
You can access the lock screen using Control+Command+Q shortcut and view the custom text on the lock screen.
Password Protect After Screen Saver Starts
Often we prefer to use a screen saver and select the Mac system to automatically go to sleep mode when not in use. The screen saver or the sleep mode do not activate the lock screen by default. So anyone can take advantage of that and gain access to your system. To avoid that, you can set a password requirement whenever the computer goes into sleep mode or after the screen saver starts.

Now you can step away from your Mac without worrying about someone being sneaky.
