How to disable autologin

There are various ways to achieve this. You can turn the auto logon off via the registry or netplwiz (user Account settings). I will be discussing how this is done via the Auto Logon Tool (SysInternal Tool).

Follow these steps below to turn off auto logon using one of the Sysinternal Tool called Auto Logon.

  • Launch the Autologon.exe as shown below, the parameters will automatically be populated.
  • Then click on Disable.

Alternatively, if the shift key is held down before the system performs an autologon, the autologon will be disabled for that logon.
