If your PC never leaves your home and you don’t really need a password, automatically logging in will save you the trouble of typing in your password.
Automating signing in potentially opens up sensitive data to anyone that has physical access to your PC.
Anyone with physical access to your PC will likely have full administrative control. From there, it is a simple matter to gain access to your Microsoft account .
If you want to use automatic login, we will recommend you instead.
How to Enable the Option to Bypass Sign-in
Windows 11 still supports automatic sign-in by default. We’ll need to use the Registry Editor (Regedit) again.
Warning: The Windows Registry is essential to the functioning of the Windows 11 operating system. Since an incorrectly deleted or changed value can result in severe errors or even an inoperable PC.
Click the Start button, type “regedit” into the search bar.
Navigate to the following address by pasting it into Regedit’s address bar:
Double-click the DWORD named “DevicePasswordLessBuildVersion,” change the Value Data from “2” to “0”, then click “OK.”
How to Enable Automatic Sign-in
Now you just have to enable local login. Hit Windows+R, type “netplwiz” into the field, then hit Enter or click “OK.”
Select your account, untick the box next to “Users Must Enter A User Name and Password To Use This Computer,” and click “Apply.”
Enter your username and password on the next screen.
The next time you restart your computer, you’ll automatically log directly into your chosen account.
