Authentication always required after boot

thanks for your reply :slight_smile:

I see what you mean. I don’t recall setting a password using the BIOS. I did set a password in the Terminal when I followed the first step (mentioned below):

one of them was setting a key. I used the same password I set for the OS when I first installed it. as I proceeded with the instructions and booted the system. I wonder if this was when I unintentionally set this password.
