(Fixes) How to Get the FileVault Recovery Key without Login Password?

My Mac login password won't work suddenly on MacBook Pro, but when I reset my password with Apple ID, it says "The supplied iCloud account was unable to unlock this volume". I even forgot I turned on the FileVault. How can I get the FileVault recovery key?

Sorry about your experience, maybe you can try the fixes below:

  1. Test if your Apple ID can sign into iCloud.
  2. Reset the NVRAM.
  3. Reset your password from macOS Recovery: Shut down then hit the power button and immediately press and hold the Command and R keys.
  4. Use the Reset Password Assistant: Repeat fix 3 then click Utilities > Terminal, and type resetpassword. Then enter your Apple ID and type the information.
  5. Reset your Apple ID password on your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or Apple Watch: Settings > your name > Password & Security > Change Password.

If the fixes above can't work, maybe you have to erase your Mac, please use iBoysoft Data Recovery in Recovery Mode.
