It s possible on my MacBook Pro (Retina, 15 pouces, mi-2015) to create a new admin account if i accidentally forgot my password.

What this method basically does is tricks the computer into thinking you just bought it, and lets you do the initial setup (Creating an Admin Account)
Shutdown Computer
Boot while holding the "Command + S" keys
Type "mount -uw /" and hit Enter
Type "rm /var/db/.Applesetupdone" hit enter
Type "reboot" and hit Enter

I want to protect my Mac from this kind of trick.How should i proceed for make this method ineffective.
