then the checkmark should be in the netplwiz

It's been happening for a few days now. When i press the power button the PC goes straight to the desktop without asking for login information, even though i have he windows hello PIN feature activated. It only asks for login information if i manually lock the computer. This is obviously a big security problem, so any help is appreciated.

 

I'm using the most recent public Windows 11 build 21H2, no updates available.

Press Win+R and type in netplwiz and press ENTER.

 

Then check if Users must enter a user name and password is enabled

Go to Settings / Accounts / scroll a bit down and DISABLE this

If the fix that @WereCatdoesn't work. Check out Regedit as admin user and navigate to "Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon"

 

Look for "AutoAdminLogon" key, if it's set to 1 it will attempt to automatically log in. Set to 0 to disable.

It works now. Either it was your fix or the update itself. Thanks again!
