How To Remove The Local User Account Password

The local user account password In Windows 10 (and below), Is simply used to prevent unauthorized access to the PC on which It's created on. Once applied, this means that every time you reboot your system, switch users or log off & log on, a password Is required to access the Windows environment. If you've changed your mind and wish to remove the password altogether, I'll show you exactly how It's done with Incredible ease.

Those who've yet to remove their password, are probably under the Impression that It's done by clicking a particular setting within Windows Itself. Quite the contrary. Once you've read the following tutorial, I'd say It's safe to assume that you never would've thought It's achieved via this particular methodology.

The process Is very easy, yet not so obvious to the average user. Sure, there are other methods to achieve the same result, however I find this to be the most effective- both In simplicity and ease of use. So let's get this tutorial happening.

Step One:
Firstly, open Windows 10 Settings and navigate to "Accounts > Sign-In options". Under "Password", click "Change".

Step Two:
As a security measure, you will be prompted to enter your currently-used password, so do just that and click "Next".

Step Three:
Now for the Interesting part that some users probably don't expect. As opposed to checking an option to remove the password, do not enter anything In every Input field- leave It blank. Hit the "Next" button.

Last Step:
A message will be returned of "Next time you sign In, use your new password". This Is very misleading because you haven't set one at all! Click "Finish" to finalize the process. You can now sign In to your account without entering a password.

Final Thoughts:
Local user account passwords are created for a reason, and not just because a user Is bored and wants to kill a bit of time. To protect sensitive data on your PC, I strongly advise to keep the password active. This helps prevent both physical, and remote unauthorized access.

If It's a computer that does not contain Important files, such as user login credentials or any Identifiable Information and you wish to remove the password, then this tutorial Is for you.
