    Password Log-in
    I recently created another user on my mac. Now it automatically logs in to my account a start up without asking for a password. Before I had to enter a password. I can't figure it out. Can someone help me out?

    Okay I've been here. Which do I set? I see the Auto Login and it set to my name. Which I know is why it's auto logging into my account. But the only other options is to auto log into the other account. I'm the primary user and don't won't auto logging to another account.

    Was starting to think you might have bigger problems.

    Sometimes we all miss what's right in front of us.
