I want to set log in password (raspebian)

Wed Dec 06, 2017 3:36 pm

Hello,
How can I set login password that every time the OS will go to "sleep" or when I turn on the device it will rquire user and password otherwise there will no be a way to using the raspebian.
Like in windows 10 that you must enter password in order to use the pc.

Thanks!

It's a "Raspberry Pi Configuration" option:

(IE. Disable "Auto Login", especially if you're booting to the desktop)
Trev.
Usually running Raspbian Jessie on up to 9 of 13 Pi's (an A, B1, B2, B+, P2B, 3xP0, P0W) and Stretch on my P3B, B+, A+ and a B2. See: https://www.cpmspectrepi.uk/raspberry_pi/raspiidx.htm

In addition if you want to have password protection on screen blanking then you can install xscreensaver and then enable lock screen after x minutes.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xscreensaver
Once installed find screensaver in [Menu] --> [Preferences]
Go here for my RPi writeup. Basic config, Serial Port add-on etc:
