Disable Windows Password Login

While having a Login Password ensures the security of your computer’s files, there may be times when you want to disable the requirement to enter a Login Password.

You might want to make it easier for children and visitors to use the computer by allowing them to log in without entering a password.

Furthermore, some users disable the Password temporarily during busy periods to gain faster access to the computer.

The steps to remove password in Windows 10 for both Local and Microsoft User Accounts on your computer are provided below.

Note: Please remember that disabling Windows 10 Login Password may expose your device to local and remote unauthorized access.

1. Turn OFF Local User Account Password on Windows 10

If you use a Local User Account, you can disable the Login Password on your computer by following the steps outlined below.

1. Navigate to your computer’s settings and then to Accounts.

2. In the left pane of the Accounts screen, select Sign-in options. Now, in the right pane, scroll down and click the Change button under the Password section.

3. On the next screen, enter your current User Account Password and click Next.

4. On the following screen, enter nothing and click Next to skip the Password setup process entirely.

5. Finally, click the Finish button.

After completing the preceding steps, you will no longer require a password to access your computer’s specific Local User Account.

2. Disable or Turn OFF Microsoft User Account Password in Windows 10

Because your credentials are linked to your online Microsoft Account, if you use Microsoft User Account, you will not disable the Login Password.

In this case, change to a Local User Account and skip the password configuration process on the Local User Account screen.

1. In the left pane, go to Settings > Accounts, and then to Your Info. Then, instead of the link in the right pane, click Sign in with a local account.

2. When prompted, enter your current Microsoft Account Password, then click Next.

3. Skip the password creation step on the next screen by not entering any Password and clicking Next.

4. To exit, click the SignOut and Finish button.

After that, your computer will no longer be linked to your Microsoft Account, and you will no longer need to enter the Login Password to access it.
