I was getting ready to upgrade from a raspberry pi 3b+ to a pi 4 for retro pi gaming. I updated my SD card to prepare it for the new board, but I got a little "surprise". After the card was updated it started asking me for a password to activate the pi. I know how important security is, but this is only a gaming machine. I find it very annoying to have to plug in a keyboard every time I want to play my games. Is there a way to turn off the password login? If this makes any difference retropie runs off of Raspbian lite.

  1. sudo raspi-config
  2. Option 3 "Boot Options"
  3. Option 1 "Desktop / CLI"
  4. Option 2 "Console Autologin" press right key to highlight and hit "OK"
  5. sudo reboot
