Can I bypass Laptop login

My new laptop requires a password everytime I turn it on. I'd like to bypass it. I'm the only computer user in the house and I would prefer to not have to log in everytime.

I would strongly suggest leaving the password, as it keeps your computer safe from malware that would assign a password and lock you out. I can't imagine it being an issue to type in your password once or twice a day, but if you must skip that, follow the steps for automatic login, and make sure you remember your password.

wise words deaconfrost its no hardship keeping a password for the user account and using the automatic login more secure and safe
