    Default Protect Your Windows XP Computer with a Blank Password?



    Some useful information. Your Windows XP computer is more safe if you don t set any password at all than using some weak password like "abc123" which can be easily guessed by hackers.

    Using a blank password (or no password at all) makes your computer more secure because Windows XP accounts, that are not protected by a password, cannot be accessed remotely over the network or the Internet.

    Just be aware with this once some guesses the user name, they can log on locally without much issue.
    This does not protect you against people with physical access to the computer.
