  1. One should not trust the Windows password, anyway. It is a trivial matter to change/delete it with free linux tools on a bootable cd/thumb.

  2. small point, but you make the common error of using the word ‘loosing’ when you mean ‘losing’
    They have totally different meanings !!

  3. ARE YOU F*ING SERIOUS???!!!

    Windows is as full of security holes as a piece of swiss cheese and you are advising people to bypass entering a password during login. Do you have any locks on windows and doors in your home or did you get rid of them too??? Having to use a key to open a lock is so time consuming and inconvenient. It is sooooo much more convenient to just push it open.

    You are a menace to the user community! I am surprised that MTE even considered publishing your article. Why don’t you do something really useful for the user community and write an article on two factor authentication, or is that too inconvenient?!

    • Hi dragonmouth, thanks for your opinion.

      I’m just showing an in-built feature in Windows and it is up to the end user whether to use this feature are not.

      • Excellent reply! People like dragonmouth have no solutions in life, but merely criticize those that do! I for one do find you article very useful, and I do not rely on logins to secure my pc!! They do not work well anyhow! Your article has saved me tons of time! Keep up the good work!

        • Your response, Robert, shows that you do not have the foggiest notion of security and the ramifications of a password-less login. Unless your entire hard drive is encrypted, anybody with physical access to your computer has access to all your data.

          “Your article has saved me tons of time!”
          And how many “tons of time” are you going to spend when your pc and/or your data is compromised? All convenience has its price. In this case the price is the secuirty of your pc and your data.

          • Well, dumbass… since, as you say, Windows’ security is laughable, WTF difference does a password make, anyway?

            Dumbass.

      • “I’m just showing an in-built feature in Windows and it is up to the end user whether to use this feature are not.”
        Which is great. However, I don’t think that the majority of MTE readers are tech-savvy enough to understand the implications of password-less login. It may be convenient but it is dangerous. I suspect that the tendency would be to opt for the convenince over the security.

    • Well, dumbass… since, as you say, Windows’ security is laughable, WTF difference does a password make, anyway?

      Dumbass.

  4. Like the idea but my concern is that if I lost or got my laptop stolen anybody would have access to it. Is this correct?

    • Yep that’s correct!!! Anyone with physical access can login into your Windows machine. This solution works better for single user desktops rather than laptops.

  5. Thanks for the reply Vamsi.
    That’s what I thought and therefore as much I like to access it quickly, I would rather be safe than sorry.
