How To: Disable Auto Login Mac OS X

You can disable the Mac X login prompt for every time your turn on your Mac computer. Some of us don’t want the hassle of entering a password each time we power on our Mac – especially if we are the only user of the Mac machine.


1. Go to -> System Preferences -> Users & Groups

2. Select the user in left panel then click Login Options.
