Logging in to your computer without password? It is actually regarded differently by each individual. For some, it’s unimaginable because it will pose a threat to their privacy & valuable data. But there are a few people who think its easier & convenient to access Windows without a password.
Prior to Windows 8.1 & 10 it was possible for users to login without a password. However, after Windows 8.1 – Microsoft Store, OneDrive and other Microsoft services were closely integrated with OS. So if we needed to buy something from MS Store or Sync data to cloud,we needed to sign in to our Micorosoft Account.
After signing in with MS Account-it was not possible for users to directly boot up to OS.They were required to enter their MS Account passwords on login. But there is a way to bypass the Password requirements using a method.
Here are the required steps to enable this feature:
Fire up a Command Prompt as Admin. In WIndows 10,search for “cmd” – right click and select Run as Administrator. Now type in ‘netplwiz’ without quotes.
In the windows which appears next, uncheck the checkbox next to ‘Users must enter a username and password to use this computer’.
You will be prompted to Enter your current password & confirm it once again. That’s it – you have enabled passwordless login on your computer with Microsoft account logged in.
Now Restart your PC and you can see that it automatically logs you in & displays the Desktop straightaway.
If you ever wants to revert back to password enabled login,just repeat the steps & check the checkbox next to ‘Users must enter a username and password to use this computer’. And it will restore the password prompt back to your computer login screen.
