4 Ways to Sign in to Windows 10 without Password

Using a password to sign into Windows 10 helps keep your PC secure. But if you’re really tired of entering the password, or the password does bring you inconvenience, you can choose not to use it or even delete it. Now this post will show you how to log in to Windows 10 without a password.

Way 1: Use other sign-in options

It is indeed a bit inconvenient to enter the password every time you log in to Windows 10, especially if your password is relatively long and complex. A good solution is to create other sign-in options, like a PIN or a picture password. If your PC has a webcam or fingerprint scanner, you can also sign in with your face or a fingerprint. If you create any of these sign-in options, Windows 10 will give priority to login in with it, without requiring you to enter a regular password. To add a sign-in option, go to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options.
