    Do I need a Windows login password?

    In most cases, the answer to this is NO! When users put in a windows login password they usually believe that they have secured their computer, however, in reality, this is very basic! 

    If anyone was to steal your computer with just a little knowledge, by removing your computer’s hard drive and plugging that into a second computer, they could access all your computer information.

    The only way to secure your computer’s information is to property encrypt your files. 

    So really the only time you need to be using a Windows login password is if you have users in your household that you do not wish to gain access to your personal files.
