    Windows sgnn-in without password


    I have been using the same pc with Windows 10 since the Win 10 upgrade was first available (don't remember which year). From the beginning, I set up my pc to let me sign on without a password by unchecking the password required box in netplwiz, as no one has access to my computer except me.


    Today, for the first time, I was required to enter a password at the lock screen. I did enter the correct password and got in. I checked netplwiz and the password required box is still unchecked. But after a few reboots it is still requiring a password to be entered. I do no not want to enter a password to access my own pc, in my own home, where no one else has access.


    What has changed to bring up the password requirement? How do I restore the setting to bypass the password?

    :)

    • If you've forgotten your Windows password, there are several ways to retrieve or reset it:
      • If your PC is on a domain, your system administrator must reset your password.
      • If you're using a Microsoft account, you can reset your password online. ...
      • If you're using a local account, use your password hint as a reminder.

    New FF - passwords


    Hi:

    If that setting is already enabled, then I suggest as the next troubleshooting step might be Mozilla Safe Mode (not to be confused with Windows Safe Mode)):

    Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode | Firefox Help


    • Please report back and let us know the outcome, as it will dictate the next steps.
    • Also: please tell us what AV/AM/firewall programs are you running on this system?

    Thanks,
    MM
