How to Disable Password Login in Windows 10

How to Disable Password Login in Windows 10

Every time to log to Windows 10, a user has to enter password for local or online Microsoft account. It guarantees a certain level of data protection against access by third parties but it is inconvenient for home users as it increases the time of access to the desktop. This article will tell you how to remove the user password when logging to Windows 10 and configure Automatically Sign-In with a specific account.
Warning. Automatic system login is used for user convenience but it decreases security level of your computer. It only has to be turned on if you are the only computer user and sure that no other person can get access to it; otherwise, the safety of your personal is at risk.
Disabling the password input does not mean that the password of your account will not be used. It will just be entered by the system during Windows 10 start. In all other cases, for example, when accessing from the network, you will have to enter it yourself.

Note. For computers in the Active Directory domain, “User must enter a username and password to use this computer” cannot be unchecked. In this case, it is easier to disable password input using the registry (described below).

How to turn on AutoLogon Using the Registry

Let’s consider a more common way to disable password input using the Registry Editor. This way allows to disable password input for a Microsoft account, as well as domain or local Windows 10 account.
Warning. This way is less secure as your password will be stored in the registry as plain text.
  • Press Win+R and type regedit
  • Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
  • Change the value of AutoAdminLogon to 1
  • Create a string value DefaultDomainName, specify the domain name or a local computer name as its value.
Tip. Computer name can be found in System Properties or using hostname commandhostname
  • In DefaultUserName parameter, a user account name will be specified, which is used to sign in (do not change it or replace with a login of another user)
  • Create a string value DefaultPassword where you have to specify the password of the accountAutoAdminLogon registry
  • Close the Registry Editor and restart your computer.
  • After the restart, you will sign in automatically with the specified account and with no need to enter the password.

Those molecules enter the space (synapse) between one nerve cell and the next. When they get picked up by neighboring cells, this gives users a feel-good high. It also creates the risk of addiction and other health problems.  EMail Print Twitter Facebook Reddit Google+ NATIONAL INSTITUTE ON DRUG ABUSE, ADAPTED BY J. HIRSHFELD Nicotine is the addictive chemical in tobacco smoke and e-cigarette vapors. And doctors say the teenage brain is no place for it to end up.
