Windows 10, Automatic Login Without Password

269

When it comes to user accounts, Windows 10 continues on the same path traced by Windows 8, first and by Windows 8.1, then.

Even the most recent operating system, that is, encourages the user to use a Microsoft account instead of a traditional local account.

From the moment of the first installation of Windows 10 or the update to this operating system, the user is invited to enter a Microsoft account (urging him to create one in case he does not have one).

Each time you log into Windows 10 using your Microsoft user account, you will be prompted for the corresponding password.

For any personal account accessible via the web (such as the Microsoft account), it is important to set a sufficiently long and complex password. The goal is obviously to ward off the brute force or dictionary-based attacks.

To avoid having to type in the password associated with the user account each time and log in automatically in Windows 10 without a password, you can follow the same procedure common to Windows 8.x and Windows 7.

Use PIN or graphical login in Windows 10

Rather than using the automatic login in Windows 10 and, consequently, completely eliminating the password request, our advice is to use the PIN or graphical login.

This possibility is particularly useful if you want to keep the login password, even for any Microsoft user account, but you prefer to avoid having to type it at each entry.

We, therefore, suggest typing Account in the Windows 10 search box then typing Manage your account.

The next step is to click on Login Options and enable PIN or graphic password login (click on the buttonAdd ).

The PIN is nothing more than a four-digit numeric code that exempts the user from having to type the password linked to the account in its entirety.

The graphic password, on the other hand, allows you to select an image and choose a sequence of points in the photo that will have to be clicked or linked to unlocking access to Windows 10.
