Question: VERY strange BitLocker "enter password" startup screen, not blue - ORANGE - I can't see anything, BUT after I type password and hit enter, Windows IS booting

Hello there

So I'm experiencing strange BitLocker behaviour. I have this PC at work. Clean Windows 8 x64 installation, 3 HDD (AHCI), no SSD.

After I set up BitLocker to encrypt "C" partition, it gave me pop-up window, that I should restart PC to test the BitLocker loader. So I clicked Yes. And after few seconds I got this:

JPG IMAGE - http://www.eightforums.com/attachments/f1/f2/22871d1370880908t-very-strange-bitlocker-enter-password-startup-screen-5jkippr.jpg

Mind, I'm still ABLE TO type password (i can't see sh** though), after I hit enter Windows IS booting, but it's really weird to see above picture instead of:


My GFX is OK, I tested it with games, benchmarks etc.
BitLocker simply cannot, for whatever reason, use my video card properly and displays those weird lines. After all - it hasn't loaded the whole Windows yet. Than again, it IS a bit strange, as Windows installers tend to work fine.


Any thoughts people?

Kind Regards

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I just reinstalled Win10.

Hey guys,

I tried booting up my PC which has Windows 8 installed and it was working fine until yesterday.

It has a "Enter Password" screen upon start-up and I think it's a virus because it only lets me enter 10 characters and even though, I do put in the correct password, it still says it's incorrect. The computer also shuts down after 3 unsuccessful attempts.

I have attached a picture of the screen.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have three computers running Windows 7 Pro 64.  All homegroups and connections worked fine until recently (system update?).  Now the "Main" computer cannot be accessd from the other two without asking for network name and password. (I never made
one from the beginning!).  The two computers cannot "see" USB printer on Main computer, and when browsing for printers on theother computers, the request for Network Name and Password comes up......also my new Samsung HD TV cannot "see" my Main computer
(wired connection), but it can see the other two computers fine (one wired, one wireless access point).
I have read lots of forum responses, but I have found nothing that works.  I have checked all the boxes, including the one for "turn off password" in advanced options for homegroups, also, "allow windows to manage homegroups".....everything that

I've got a desktop computer with XP Pro SP3 and a laptop with both XP and Win7(dual-boot). These two computers are connected through a router in a network(desktop comp-wired, laptop-wireless). Everything works fine, except the sharing in Win7. From the desktop computer I can access all resources on the laptop without problems. From the laptop, everything works fine too, when I try to access the desktop computer's shared folders and printers, but ONLY FROM XP. Every time I want to do this from Win7, I'll be prompted for a "network password". I have no idea what I had to enter - I did a search over the internet, and found following suggestions:

-turn on network discovery, file and printer sharing, public folder sharing at the Advanced Sharing Settings, and disable password-protected sharing
-both computers are in the same workgroup
-disabled the limitation of blank passwords in the group policy editor

NOTHING WORKED. (firewall might not be the reason, because I use Windows Firewall, and it's configured to enable sharing)

What username/password do I have to enter, or how could I access the resources without a password? Thanks in advance for your help.

Answer:Windows 7 prompts "Enter Network Password"

Try this adjustment on the XP machine. This usually works to get rid of the password prompt.

Goto... Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy > Local Policies > Security Options

Scroll down to... Network Access: Sharing and security model for local accounts

Select... Guest only and not Classic.

So that pops up once i get my old tower/cpu running up. It hasnt been touched since 2006 so i forgot the password. Any help to get around this? Plus, please tell me how to get around this without a windows cd or to use money. Thanks!!

Answer:"Your password has expired. Please enter your password and renew."

By default Windows passwords will never expire unless set by an Admin on a corporate network or set by yourself. Is it the Windows account password you are talking about?

If so the only help that we can provide for resetting the password is by using this tutorial - Reset User Account Password

My apologies for the limited help but I cannot provide any other methods as this would violate certain legislation

I've been using Outlook 2007 for a while with no problems. I used to select my account, and when the "Enter Network Password" box popped up it had the focus, so I would just immediately type in my password. I did a set of Windows and Office updates a couple of weeks ago, and now when that box pops up the focus is still on the main Outlook mail reader screen. I have to click the Password box to shift the focus so I can type in my password. Is there a way to restore this automatic focus for the Password panel when it pops up?

Please allow the Guest account access to all of the files on both the share security and the file system security settings.

You can start this process by right clicking the share and root directory and hitting the Security tab, then adding 'Guest' and allow entries, respectively until completed.

While you're there you may as well be sure that there are no deny permissions active.

How do I stop pop-uo "Enter Network Password" in Outlook 2207. Running Office 2007 on Win7 x 64 with MSE for anti-virus.

I've three email accounts: yahoo, gmail, and the never used ISP's email all POP3 ... My Smartphone running Android also checks for gmail and yahoo mail.

Outlook is set for send/receive every 10 minutes. The oh so WAY too familiar pop-up box "Enter Network Password" appears intermittently and seems to be related to the Yahoo account's download/receiving process. I can close the pop-up, hit F9 to retry sending and receiving, and on all accounts all is well...for a while.

Then, it happens again....for a few days now. I increased send/receive to 11 minutes...no love.

Of course, I am interested in stopping this. It's happened before. I suspect 'changes' at Yahoo, with no more foundation for that suspicion than I have that Santa is on my roof ....still, I don't want to format C: and re-install everything only to discover that another day or two of doing nothing would have yielded the invisible fix and gotten me past all this.

Help?

and Happy Holiday
 

Answer:How do I stop pop-up "Enter Network Password" in Outlook 2207

As your Outlook does work some of the time it's near certain the problem is external, so changing account or other settings is unlikely to resolve it. I would sit on my hands and use webmail for a week or so, see if it improves.

Outlook 2007 "Enter Network Password prompt" and wont retrieve emails. I have already deleted and reset the account & have changed ISP email password so we know it's the right PW, sort of at a loss right now. Any help greatly appreciated TY in advance.
 

Answer:Outlook 2007 "Enter Network Password prompt" and wont retrieve emails

Removing and setting the account back up was the right move. Some people swore a reboot was needed after this was done.

Just to be 100% on the password, try going to a web service like mail2web.com and see if you can retrieve your email. At least then you're sure the email and password are working just to eliminate the obvious.

I also read that if your mail servers settings are "mail.yourisp.com" for example, remove the mail.

Are you accessing the mail from multiple devices? That can cause an issue.

Sorry if this has been answered, but I can't seem to find a thread that applies to this situation:

Just installed new router, linksys e3000. I'm on a Win7 box, wired, and connecting fine to the internet, and the Tivo and my ipod touch are connecting fine wirelessly. so far so good.

I can see the router via 192.168.1.1 from my BROWSER and adjust settings etc, all as normal, and as with old routers I've had.... again, so far so good.

The new router has a USB port, so I thought I'd see how that worked. Plugged in a USB HD to the port. The router recognizes it in its router admin setup pages under 192.168.1.1. So far so good.

Here's the problem. On the Win7 box, I go to "Network" and I see two things under "Computers". I see "WIN7PC" (my windows box) and I see "BOBNET" (the name I gave the router during setup). Clicking on WIN7PC I see my shared folders, as usual. Clicking on BOBNET, I get the prompt "Enter Network Password: Enter your password to connect to BOBNET (user box)(password box) domain WIN7PC "

I've entered every combination of user and password I can think of, nothing lets me in.

- I have NO password associated with my Win7 user name "Bob".
- I tried "admin" and the router password, as if I was logging into the router via the browser. No joy.

Answer:Linksys e3000 "Enter Network Password"

A quick Google and a look in the router manual shows quite an extensive set-up and control system for the USB drive sharing (3. Advanced settings P27)

the log in details may be Admin / Admin or admin / (blank), but in any case this should be settable from the router end

I suggest that you add an additional user with the same name and password as your win7 username (depending on the router firmware / OS you may have to provide a password.

Having the same user / password in win7 and the E3000 should make things easier

I reached the limit of my patience well over an hour ago, and I'm praying that someone has the answer I can't seem to find anywhere.

I have three PCs: Hal, Falcon, and Athena. Hal and Falcon are desktops running 7 Ultimate x64. Athena is a netbook running 7 Home Premium 32bit. All of them played nicely with each other across the network, and not a single "Enter Network Password" prompt was to be found. From Hal I could get into Athena and Falcon, from Athena I could get into Hal and Falcon, you get the idea.

Yesterday, I reformatted Athena with the same OS it has now, 7 Home Premium 32bit. Post install, things went pear shaped. Athena can get into Hal and Falcon. Hal and Falcon can get into each other. Hal and Falcon cannot get into Athena. From both of those machines, I get an "Enter Network Password" prompt. I spent literally all day looking for a solution. I did not find one. I rebooted, I searched, I double checked all the settings, I ran a troubleshooter that said I didn't have permission to access the Share (this is the default Share by the way, the User Folder Share), so with my limited knowledge I checked the Permissions. To my eyes, everything was identical to the other two computers, and there was no reason I shouldn't be able to walk right in.

If you are using homegroup, it uses IPv6 and has known issues with some legacy systems. You can keep what hair you have left by enabling a workgroup (IPv4 instead) and it wont require a password.

Hi all--

I'm running XP Home and Outlook (not Outlook Express).

I changed servers last week, and started having incoming server problems.
Now I'm getting a dialogue box popping up very often, asking me to "Enter Network Password."

when you changed servers did you input the old settings into the new one. How is the network set up. Is your e-mail coming in through the server using exchange server or do you get the e-mails in directly through the domain.

None of my wife's passwords worked and I cannot find a password that will open up this computer. It seems this is a password that Toshiba puts in HD and they cannot tell me anything but to ship it to them for a fee of course.

NE 1 here find a work around?
 

Answer:"Enter Built in HDD1 Password" NE way around this?

If you have the original OS disks you can re-install the OS and that will automatically format the HDD.

I have four computers running Windows 8.1

On three the User Accounts dialog box has the phrase, "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer."
I have deselected that box and entered the passwords and now I log in automatically.

But on one computer in the User Accounts dialog box there is no phrase, "Users must enter..." and there is not box to deselect.
What to do?

thanks

John

Answer:"Users must enter a user name and password..."

Hello John, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Is that PC a member of a domain by chance?

If so, then the "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer." box will not be available.

Hi! I'm trying to connect my Macbook to my PC, and every time I double-click the name of my Mac, the prompt comes up.
I've turned off password protected settings(both) and made Reading and Writing available for everyone on my Mac, and this prompt still comes up. I've used every password I can think of as well.
After many tries of turning the setting off, even though I've read you're not supposed to have to, I reset my computer, and even that did nothing.
Anything helps, I'm stuck in a rut and can't get out.
Here's a screenshot of the window if that helps:

Answer:"Enter Network Password" Prompt

If you are connecting to the MAC book you need to authenticate using credentials on that MAC book and not the local account being shown. For example, if I had your MAC book with a username of Josh on it I would click the 'Use another account' option and enter the following:

Username: ASHLYNS-MACBOOK\Josh

Password: {password that was configured on the mac book for that user account}

Unless you have the same username and password on both your Windows machine and Macbook you would end up with that screen.

In terms of allowing everyone access you would need to look into the share permissions itself.

Hope This Helps,
Josh

There are certain sites, mostly porn, that will pop up an Authentication error message asking me to "Enter Network Password." Then it lists the site name and the realm. Under that it prepopulates with my user name and wants me enter a password. What password are they talking about?? I also have network settings active that I don't want to be active. I made the mistake of trying to Network with another home computer without knowing much about it, and now I want it to go back to when I had my WinME as just a single user computer with no prompts or choices for ANY kind of "network" garbage. This password this has really got my knickers in a twist!

Any help?? Puh-leeeese?

Hello. I'm new to the forum but not new to using the tools on this site. I'm running Vista with Outlook 2007. All of a sudden I start getting the "Enter Password" box. Very annoying. I searched in the forum and noticed the same fix that I tried. That was to create a new profile. I tried that and after four hours of downloading my emails from the server I couldn't get my .PST set up correctly. Anyway, can anyone direct me to the register fix for this problem for Vista. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When trying to access my other computer on my peer network (both Win2K) the "Enter Network Password" box shows up saying "Incorrect password or unknown username for:" with boxes for "Connect As" and "Password". The problem is I don't have any passwords, I have always been able to connect without this password box showing up.

The only thing that has changed since I have been able to connect is that I installed a new hard drive and transfered everything over to the new drive. I am connecting thru a router but my connection is right because I can see both computers from the other in My Network Places.

What could have changed to cause this to happen and how can I resolve it?

Unfortunately, no one would be able to help you with that. There are supposedly free Windows password cracking software out there on the net you can do a search for. Otherwise you will need to reinstall Windows with a recovery disk or a plain Windows installation disk, if you are asked for a password to use the recovery disk (which I have never heard of).

Hello, I have a problem with my Satellite A300-14S PSAJ0E-00W00PSK.

*Screen with input "Enter password" appears every time when I turn it on.* When I put wrong password 3 times, my laptop turns off. I had installed windows 7 with ubuntu for 2 years with no problems but I cannot boot any operating system now (even when I boot with inserted CD/DVD with windows/ubuntu).

*When can I get correct password? Or it is another solution of this problem?*

Thank You for any advice!

Answer:Satellite A300 - "Enter password" on startup screen

I presume your notebook is locked with BIOS password.
BIOS password cannot be set from alone but I don?t understand your situation.
Either you have blocked your notebook with BIOS password or someone have done it without your knowledge.
Have you some explanation for this situation.

Anyway, if BIOS password is not known to you, you must contact nearest Toshiba service and ask for help. They can remove it for you.

Answer:Satellite C850D problem blue screen "Enter password"

Hmmm?. Looks like a BIOS password.

Could it be possible that another user/person set it on your notebook?

However, I have no idea why this appears but as far as I know the unknown BIOS password can be reset only by an authorized service provider in your country.

My wife's computer was running Windows 7 and Windows 10 automatically installed. Fortunately there was no problems until I made a change. She has never had a windows login password, just clicked on her name a picture on startup which remained the same on Windows 10

She is using an HP printer which had a toolbox icon on the desktop. I opened the tool box to check her ink cartridge levers only now none of that info is available. No problem. Windows 10 said I could download an HP app that could be used to check ink cartridge levels, printer settings etc. In order to do that I had to sign in using my personal Microsoft account.

Now her computer shows my name and asks for my Microsoft account password before she can login. I used netplwiz.exe to attempt some changes, once of which was to untick the box that requires a password to login to windows however it still requires a password.

PROBLEM: When windows starts up my name and picture appear with a box that displays "incorrect password" If I click on the box my name and Microsoft account info appear on the bottom left hand corner. When I click on my account, it transfers to the login section on the middle of the screen and I can then enter my password.

I attempted to set up her an account but Windows 10 set up a whole new account and all of her program shortcuts disappeared so I deleted the account. Her name and email address, my name and Microsoft account address, and just my name appeared in the bottom left ha... Read more

Hi there,

I tried to re-load this again and the same thing happened again, this time with a BSOD. I tried a different game and the same thing occured, took slightly longer though. Given it was late I went to bed.

Today on loading up the sign in screen was flickering lots, I entered my password and was met by a black screen. The computer continued to make fan noises as if it was working, but nothing on my screen. This happened again. On restaring my computer the crash report read

windows 10 HP Pavilion 15- n259Tx ( Can't type Password in login screen)

I am facing this issue that I can't type Password in login screen in windows 10.

When I press key to enter password nothing happened. Password field is blank, it is not detecting keystrokes.

I ran chkdsk /f and /r , no issue found. I ran through safe mode and then i was able to enter password. But when I again tried to login normally I couldn't enter password.

Later I did factory reset by pressing f11 key (using HP recovery manager) which wiped everything and from windows 10 it got restored to original windows 8.

So now in windows 8 during first login I entered password and it worked.

I restarted my system and Woah same problem again. I couldn't enter password.

Can you access the onscreen keyboard? There should be a 3quarter circle with the rest a dotted line to access the accessibility mode under Win 10 but not sure under Win 8. That should allow you to enter the password.

I am locked out of my Windows PC as my keyboard appears to be inoperative as soon as the Welcome screen appears and I am requested to type in my password. I have full mouse functionality and when I click on the word "password" this
text vanishes and the cursor flashes, yet when I type no text / asterisks appear in the box.


In the very top left of the blue welcome screen there are three icons which bear Chinese characters and the tooltips for each icon are as follows. From left to right:

Yi Input Method (version 1.0) | Chinese/English input (shift) | Double/Single byte (shift + space)
The Yi Input icon is lit and I am unable to click it off and this makes me suspicious that my input device is locked to a Chinese keyboard. I know that my (English) keyboard is working because I am able to use cursor keys and type in letters if I enter the
BIOS. It is only when I boot up to Windows to that the keyboard appears to be rendered inoperative. I have also tried the 'change password' option from the Welcome screen and when I insert my password reset USB stick I am also unable to type in the text boxes
that appear.

Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in anticipation.

Hi all
My daughter gave me her old Vista computer and it requires me to enter a password when booting, I have the password and can enter it no problems but I don't want to have to enter it every time I turn the computer on, I want to be able to turn it on and come back later when it's booted and ready to go the same as I have always done on my XP machines. So is there a way of removing the requirement to enter the password? I have the existing password and full admin rights so I can change anything needed to remove the password requirement.
Thanks in advance for all help received.

Answer:How do I change the requirement to enter the password when booting the computer?

Logon Automatically


Press WinKey+R or click on Start then Run, enter control userpasswords2 and press Enter or click OK.Check the "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" checkbox then click Apply. If it's already checked, skip to step 3.Select the user you want to be automatically logged on by clicking on it.Uncheck the "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" checkbox then click Apply.
When you do this another window will open with the userid you selected showing (you can enter a different one if the wrong one is showing). Enter the password if there is one, leave blank otherwise. Click OK and you're done. Next boot, the userid you selected should be automatically logged on.

Or, since you don't care about passwords, just remove the password from Control Panel, User Accounts.

I had to buy a new (SSD) HD and had trouble booting from a disc until I enabled Legacy Mode and disabled Secure Boot in BIOS. Now whenever I boot up I get a "No Boot Device Found" message until I hit "Enter" at which point i'm allowed entry into my precious Win10 laptop.

Boot orders in both UEFI and Legacy are the same, with DVD Rom set to boot first. (Also, the settings for IPV4 and IPV6 are set to IPV4 (Legacy) when they were before set to BOTH IPV4 AND 6 and are unable to be changed, if that's important.)

I disabled Legacy in BIOS, but then i get a different "No Boot Device Found" error, and hitting "Enter" doesn't help.

Could some kind person tell me how to correct this, and possibly why it happened and the differences in each option?

I'll settle for how to correct this, though, with much gratitude.

VERY MUCH gratitude.

Answer:"Boot Device Not Found" - but hitting "Enter" afterward PC boots fine

Boot into Setup (Bios) go to the Security Tab, Disable Legacy Mode and Enable UEFI Bios. Also Enable Secure Boot.
Go to Integrated Peripherals and look for Hard Drive mode, or SATA. Set the SSD for AHCI mode and not Legacy or IDE. Go to the Boot tab, Move SSD to First UEFI Boot Device. Save and Exit.

At start Satellite L855 - 11K appears for a few seconds the F2/F12 options and immediately appears a blue window asking for the password, "Enter Password", and that's all since I recover the password for my son and don't know what happens or what he does. What can I do to start the computer again? Thank you in advance.

I keep getting on random programs where it says "a program is trying to enter full screen. Do you want to switch the program to full screen?" and if I say yes (especially on a program that shouldn't be full screen) the computer will ALWAYS freeze up! I Googled that message but it didn't come up, and Googling it in quotes results in "no results for" "searching without quotes"!!!

Answer:"a program is trying to enter full screen" message

This says it's for older versions of Windows but the instructions are still the same. Just reverse the instructions and make sure the programs are set to Normal and not Maximized. http://www.answersthatwork.com/Downl..._maximized.pdf

Sometimes when I try to connect to a wifi network, i enter my username/password, it tries to connect for a while then I get the same popup asking me to enter my user credentials...again.
There is never any reason specified for why I am being asked to re-enter my user credentials.
This is extremely annoying. How can I troubleshoot this if Windows does not tell me why?
Event viewer shows no error messages either.
Is there any way to get Windows to tell me why I am being asked to re-enter my user credentials?

Hi, I have my Windows 8.1 PC's password policy set so that a password is not required when waking from sleep/shutdown. I used to be able to wake the PC from sleep and not put in a password, and I could turn the PC on after a shutdown without having to put in a password either. Since last week, though, when I turn my PC on, it will boot to the Windows loading screen and after loading for a bit, it will jump into the login screen and immediately report a login error that the username or password is incorrect. This happens before I even get a chance to type a username or password. The fact that I have to type in the username and password is strange because I have the PC set to bypass that option.

Can anyone tell me what's happening with this login error issue and how to fix it?

Thanks

Answer:Password not required: "Password Incorrect" on startup

Hello MechaKong, and welcome to Eight Forums.

This usually happens when your password had not been entered correctly in netplwiz, or you had changed your password and didn't update it in netplwiz.

You could go through netplwiz again to enter your password again to sort it.

I broke one of the "feet" on my old E-Machines PS/2 keyboard I have used for years and like. I also use one at work that's pretty close to the same layout. I am looking everywhere for a keyboard with a large "enter" and "backspace" I can't find one. I don't care if it's USB or PS/2 but hate the "flat" type that ship with computers these days you look at the key to hard and it presses. I have HUGE hands and like the "old style" keyboard that you have to press pretty hard on the keys (like an actual spring under them) Do any of you know of a specialty keyboard shop or somewhere else with a big selection? I have looked all over the internet on the "major" places. (i.e. Newegg, TigerDirect, BestBuy, Wal-Mart, etc...)

If anyone knows of a place that has "old style" keyboards please let me know. I may have to settle but for such a small purchase that I use so much, I'd like to get what I want and I can't be the only one with massive hands having these same issues. The world isn't made for us big guys.

Answer:Keyboard large "Enter and Backspace" and "stiff" keys

Actually, PS2 is still in vogue on on most motherboards, and most local computer repair shops sell older KBs - maybe for more than they are worth, but they do.

I have an older KB that is PS/2 - I'll make a pic and post it if you want it.

Please can somebody help with this minor but annoying matter. When turning on my business computer one morning, the space bar and return/enter buttons are visable when i type emails, but when i send them, they are not. I know its a setting, but can anyone tell me what setting and how to turn it off?

Thanks!

Answer:[SOLVED] &quot;Space bar&quot; and &quot;return/enter&quot; are visual on emails! Help

You need to tell us what email client you use as these days not everyone uses the built-in one.

My thinkpad 2 did some updates and now it's just coming up with a screen that has my domain name and no option to enter my password to get in, ie., just a blue screen with my user and domain name so I cannot get anywhere. I've restarted several times and it just keeps coming up with the bluescreen and no options to swipe or move in any way from there.  Does anyone have any advice please?  It's chosen a really rotten time to act up as I'm flying from the UK to Montreal tomorrow and really need it!!

Answer:no start screen to enter password

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
Could you clarify which device you have, please?You mention "thinkpad 2", which could be taken as a ThinkPad Tablet 2, but your post is in the ThinkCentre desktop forum.

This is a problem I've never encountered in the past (and, believe me, I've encountered hundreds of them). When I turn on my desktop pc, everything is working fine until I come to the log in screen. My curser is an arrow, and it works fine, moves around the screen as it should, until I try to place it into the "type your password" area. At that point, the curser arrow turns into a hand, and it won't allow me to type my password, which means I'm unable to get on line.

I've tried everything I know how to try; unplugging the machine, rebooting, trying a different mouse, etc. Nothing works. Can someone advise me what to do in this situation?

Thanks for your help.

Windows 10 has been working fine since install on my Dell desktop. Then one day when I went to use it, I can't enter any info on the user/password screen. When the PC starts it goes to the screen with wallpaper, time and date. When I touch any key or mouse click it goes to the screen to select user and enter password to log in. At that point the screen goes to black within half a second or so. I can't click on anything. After about 30 seconds it returns to the wallpaper, time and date screen. I have restarted the PC numerous times, but no change. I can get into the F2, but see no place to restore to earlier date, etc. TIA

Answer:There should be "never" option in "require password a after" lock screen setting.

I personally think this option is about as niche as something can get.
