Login password on Windows 10 is the password that you’ve set up for your user account. It is what you need to enter each time you want to log-in to your machine. It keeps your data protected as anyone without entering the password won’t be allowed to access your machine.
While keeping your account password protected is a really good idea, sometimes entering the password each time you log-in becomes too much of a task. If you’re the only user of your computer and you’re sure nobody else uses your machine, you can actually remove the login password from your Windows 10 computer.
Once you’ve removed the password, you can then access your computer without entering any passwords at all. Your computer becomes wild-open letting anyone access to all of your files, data, and other information saved on your computer.
If you’d like to proceed with removing the password from the login screen on your Windows 10 computer, the following methods should teach you how to do it.
