When using the mint dispaly manager MDM it is like such:
System Tools > Administration > Login Window > Give your Password > tab: Auto login > check: Enable Automatic Login
choose user: your name and close

without reasoning deserves a short response without reasoning.
Excuse me if I came over as offended or rude .

On with the discussion. I believe that auto-login is safer and at least as convenient.
Me being fairly inexperienced in linux-distros and all, I just wasn't aware of the possibility.

Cheers!

No harm, no foul.
"Removing" the password and automating the login are not the same thing.
We both should have seen that, IMO.

I know we are on Linux but somebody mentioned Windows.
Here a handy tip:
To turn on autologin in Windows 8.1
search for and open the "run" window
type:
netplwiz
and enter
rest is self explanatory
