    password protect

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community forum.

    I would suggest you to provide some information to help you better.

    • Are you referring to BIOS password as Boot password?
    • Is it a login password which you are referring when Windows starts?
    If Login password, provided you are using Local Account on Windows 10 you may follow the below steps:
    • Press Windows + R keys to open Run command
    • Type " control userpasswords2 "
    • Select the account and uncheck "user must login with password"
    • Select apply and Ok.
    If Boot password you may have to contact your computer manufacturer.

    Keep us posted to help you better.

    Password issue

    After going through the steps to make a new password, after a week or two, my login credentials are no longer valid. I'm forced to make a new password all over again. It seems to happen if I don't login in a certain period of time. Does our passwords expire???

    How to disable Password protection to avoid login with password everytime I use system

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you want to disable password protection on your system. I will be glad to assist you with this issue.

    I would like to inform you that if you are using Microsoft account then you cannot disable the password protection. Every time you boot to your system you have to enter your password to login to the system. This is by design.
    However, you can disable password protection for waking up from sleep, that is you don't have to use password to login again after your system wakes up from sleep mode.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps:

    1. Right click on the Start button and select Control Panel.

    2. Now select Power options.

    3. Select the option Require a password on Wake-up.

    4. Now click on the option change settings that are currently unavailable.

    5. Next choose the option Don't require a password.

    6. Now click on save changes.

    Now check if your issue is resolved.

    Let us know if it helps. We will be glad to assist you further.

    Thank you.
