  2. Remove sign in pin

    Hi Joel,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to remove the sign in pin/password options.

    • In the search box type sign-in-option.
    • Click on the sign-in-option.
    • Then you can find password/pin/picture password.
    • There you can remove the option and check.
    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.

    @margrave55's video is a rather long-winded demo of setting a blank password for a local account. That's Option One in this tutorial.

    Remove Password of Local Account in Windows 10

    Actually, most of my machines have blank passwords so I know that works. But you cannot use this if you sign in with a Microsoft account (or if you wish to keep the account password-protected, but sign in automatically). For that you need to use the tutorial Kari suggested.

    First of all, if the answer was obvious I wouldn't have posted a thread about it. Second, that tutorial doesn't work because for him he was able to leave the password blank and hit next, but when I do that new password field turns red and says this information is required. Let me know what I should do.

    Nothing changed after I tried this. The problem continues to persist.

    Probably cuz it doesn't work. Granted he did give me a solution that didn't work any better than yours.

    Using a native Windows tool that I clearly demonstrated doesn't work. Can we table this discussion for a later time? Right now I'm just trying to find out how to log into Windows without having to enter a password, pin, etc.

    - - - Updated - - -

    But it's not a demo of setting a blank password to a local account since clearly that's not what it does. I still think setting a blank password is a viable option I'm just waiting on someone to tell me how to do it.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I also tried the tutorial you posted, as I previously mentioned, and the sign-in process does seem to be involved with a Microsoft account somehow. However, the tutorial that Kari suggested does nothing, which I clearly just demonstrated, so I'm not sure why you would suggest it.
