In the event that you’ve reached the end of the solution and are determined to remove your password, there are a few things you should be aware of before you disable your startup sign-in feature.

What Are the Security Risks of Not Logging in at Startup?

The first and most obvious security risk associated with removing a password from a Windows 11 device is that it grants access to anyone who is physically close to the computer.

While removing your passcode doesn't make you more vulnerable to remote attacks, anyone close to your device can gain access to it and access any information you store on it without your knowledge.

If you have an administrator account on your PC and remove the password, any malicious programs that may be running on your device will have greater access. This is not a disadvantage in itself, however, you should be aware of this additional complication before attempting to remove your login password.

With a Microsoft account, you won't be able to reset your Windows 11 password. You must be logged in with the local account created for yourself to use this feature.

Final Words

Now, you have known how to use Windows 11 widgets without signing in. Besides, you can know the security risks of not logging in at startup.
