Create A Password

Placing a password on your computer prevents others from gaining easy access to that computer. While there are ways of getting around a simple username and password, these methods are not simple for the average person. Sometimes when people purchase a new computer, they do not utilize a password to secure their computer. This could be because they are the only person that has physical access to that computer, or because they can’t come up with a password at the time of setup.

Whatever the reasoning is for not using a password or if you want to change your password, the steps below will help you implement a password on your account.
