Generally speaking, no password is needed to "do web browsing". You might need one to connect to the internet depending on your ISP.

for normal web browsing, there is no need for password. but for the sites that you mentioned just like Facebook, E-mails, Twitter etc.. you indeed need a password for authorization.
