Removing Windows 11 password is not the move for everyone as it makes your computer vulnerable. It is recommended to have some form of security such as a password or PIN to protect your data and privacy.

You should only proceed with password removal when you trust everyone around you. If you move your Laptop around too much, it opens up the possibility of someone else accessing your your files.

You should only proceed if security is not a concern for you and you find using a password every time redundant.

  3. Choose an Account:

    • Identify the username for which you want to remove the password. In my case, I will be using the J4y J3ff account.
  4. Remove Password:

    • To remove the password for this user account, type the following command, replacing 'username' with the actual username for which you want to remove the password:

      net user username *

      After entering the command, you'll be prompted to type a password for the user. Simply press 'Enter' without typing anything. You'll be asked to confirm by typing the password again. Again, press 'Enter' without typing anything. This will effectively remove the password for that user account.
