Microsoft Windows – How To Disable Sign-In After Sleep

My Windows PC does not have a password! How to fix sign-in request in that case?

If you have trouble having to sign-in each time you wake your computer from sleep, here’s a simple solution to the problem. Unfortunately, most online tutorials do not cover the scenario when your account does not have a password set up in the first place but Windows still prompts you to click or tap on Sign-in button! What should you do in such a weird case?

Microsoft Windows 10 – How To Disable Sign-in After Sleep

If you do not have a password set up in the first place the majority of online tutorials will simply fail because you will not have Require sign-in option available they all mention. We need to use a little trick described below to get around this problem.

STEP 1

Click on Microsoft Windows logo button (START) > then Settings (gear shaped) icon

STEP 3

Set your temporary password – don’t worry we will remove it later! You can set something trivial like 12345 but remember this – your password hint must not contain password itself (it must be a different word or sentence). Just follow instructions on the screen, click Next, and then Finish buttons to set your account password. You can also quickly hit ENTER keys on your keyboard (much quicker) for Next and Finish buttons.
