Often times as it is with previous Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 you are required to log-in into Windows 10 with your credentials.They are the Hotmail account you used when doing Windows Setup or general log-in information you created when you disconnect the email account. For those who find it drudgery to sign into the system using the account created during installation can disable the process to automatically log into the Windows environment as an alternative way.

Having said that, you should understand a sign-in account serves as a security measure to prevent others from directly logging into your computer without your approval. Nevertheless, there are advantages of using your system without password, like in the case you forget your password and it reduces the time it takes to input the password before signing into your system. But, the risk of not having a password in a system outweigh the need of having one.
If you are ready to remove your Windows log-in account this rudimentary step-by-step process will be useful to you in doing that.
