There are some cases where you might want to bypass Windows 10 password and automatically log in without typing a password, for instance, when you forgot the password and therefore get locked out, or when you are getting bored with typing the password. Now, in this page we will show you how to bypass Windows 10 password in the two cases: when you are signed in & when you are locked out.

However, if you sign out or lock Windows 10, the password still needs to be entered before you can re-login.

Step 2: After the Command Prompt opens, type the command: net user <username> * and press Enter key. When “Type a password for the user:” appears, press Enter key. When “Retype the password to confirm:” appears, press Enter key again. That’s it. This will remove the password in no time. Next time Windows 10 will automatically login without a password.
