Change Users & Groups Login Options preferences on Mac
If you’re an administrator of your Mac, you can use the Login Options pane of Users & Groups System Preferences to customise how users log in to your Mac.
To change these preferences, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Users & Groups , then click Login Options in the list on the left.
Note: If the lock at the bottom left of the pane is locked , click it to unlock the preference pane.
Automatically log in a particular user when the Mac restarts (choose the user’s account name and enter the user’s password).
This option is useful if the Mac has only one user and is always in a secure location. If security is a concern, don’t turn on automatic login. When automatic login is off, users are required to log in whenever the Mac restarts.
Note: If FileVault is turned on, automatic login is disabled.
