Of course I don’t generally recommend, nor use automatically logging in to your Ubuntu system. But there are some cases in which it can be useful to enable auto logins, such as when a computer user is disabled and can’t easily use a keyboard.
So enough talking, it’s time for some action!
Enable automatic login
- Log in with account that is authorized as a system administrator
- Open System/Administration/Login Window
- In Security tab Enable Automatic Login and choose user
- If there is a password protected wifi connection, then another password will still be requested by the Gnome Keyring manager.
Removing the keyring password :
- Log in with default account
- Open Preferences/Encryption and Keyrings
- Select the entry “login Automatically unlocked when user logs in.”
- Click on “Change Unlock Password”
- Enter old password, and leave new passwords blank
That’s it you’re done!
