When Windows 11 users have set a login password before, the Windows login screen will appear to require them to type in the password so that they can access the computer. Setting a login password is a security feature used frequently by Windows users to protect their systems & data, preventing others from getting access to the computer without permission, including users themselves.
However, some users don’t share their computers with anyone, only use a PC to play games or have no other important data stored on the computers. It is redundant for them to enter a password every time they log in to their Windows 11 computer. In short, if privacy or data safety isn’t your priority, you can easily remove the password from your Windows 11 without hesitation.
Next, I will introduce you to 3 methods to remove or disable the login password in Windows 11.
Method 1: Remove Login Passwords in the Settings App
- Hit Windows + I to open the Settings window, click on Accounts on the left-hand side, scroll down, and then click Sign-in Options.
- Scroll down, and click Password > Change.
- Then you’ll be prompted to enter your current password, then pick a new one. Just leave all of the boxes related to your new password completely blank and just click Next and Finish.
Method 2: Remove Login Passwords with Command Prompt
- Type in cmd in the Search box and select the Run as administrator option to open Command Prompt.
- Type the command: net user and press Enter to view all the accounts.
- Then type the following command and press Enter to change the account password:
net user USERNAME *
(Change USERNAME with the account name you want to update.)
- Press Enter twice to remove the password on Windows 11.
- After you complete the steps, the account will be accessible without a password.
Method 3: Remove Login Passwords with Registry
Making changes to the registry is a critical process, so only try this method if you are super sure. That’s because a small lapse of judgment can make your system obsolete in no time.
- Type regedit in the search box and press the Enter button to launch Registry Editor.
- In the Registry Editor, paste the following path into the address bar at the top of your screen and hit Enter:
- Now, right-click on the Winlogon folder, and select String Value.
- Name the string value as DefaultUserName.
- Double-click on the string you have just created, enter your Microsoft Account username in the Value data section and click OK to save the changes.
- Next, create another string and name it DefaultPassword.
- Double-click on the DefaultPassword string, enter your Microsoft password under the Value data and click on OK.
- In the Winlogon folder, create an AutoAdminLogon sting as shown above and double-click to change its value data.
- Finally, type 1 under Value data instead of 0, and click on the OK button.
- Close Registry Editor and restart your computer, and you don’t need to enter a password anymore to open your PC.
This article has recommended 3 methods to remove passwords, including Account Settings, using Command Prompt and changing Registry Editor. However, do not follow suit and delete important login passwords blindly. Please set or remove passwords according to your own requirements.
