Windows allows you to log into the system without having to enter a password . Even if you already have a password, deleting it is possible
Although it is recommended that to access our PC with Windows 10 (also with macOS) it asks us for the password, there may be cases in which it is not necessary to have access control . In this case, the use of a password is unnecessary allowing direct access to the desktop.
Loss of security and privacy, it is true, but for all those who do not require this system, Windows allows you to log into the system without having to enter a password . Even if you already have a password, deleting it is possible just by following these steps.
How to remove the password
To achieve this, just access the "Start" menu and in the search box write the command "netplwiz" and access it in the right panel by using administrator permissions.
We will see a new window with different options and of all of them the box "Users must enter their name and password to use this computer"
The team will ask us, as a security measure, to enter our current password to confirm our identity . We will only have to then click on "OK".
We have to restart the computer and from that point, Windows 10 will no longer ask us for a password to log in when turning on the PC.
However, Windows will continue to ask for the password if the computer comes out of a sleep state. To avoid this, just go to "Settings" , "Accounts" and in "Sign in options" mark the option "Never" in the "Require Sign in" section .
Switch to a local account
We have completed the step, but it may still be that, if our Windows account is linked to a Microsoft account , the computer will ask us for the password every time we lock the computer using the Win + L keys.
To end this limitation we must use a local account instead . To do this we have to go back to "Settings" and "Accounts" and press "Your info" . At that point we will see the section "Sign in with a local account instead" .
At that point, a configuration wizard begins in which we have to carry out several steps , the first being to confirm our user account and our Microsoft account and thus confirm our identity.
From there we are going to configure our local Windows 10 account by typing a username, a local password ( we must leave it blank so it does not ask us for a password ) and an indicator that helps us remember the password.
At that point we click on "Sign out and finish" and at that point, Windows 10 will close our session and we will have our new active local account.
