    Hi guys, i've installed Yosemite without the filevault option, but the system ask me to type password at every boot. Does anyone know how to disable this?_?

    Yosemite requires the password before actually fully booting up, unlike Mavericks. I don't know what filevault is so I can't say much more.

    Maybe it's related to the overall Security & Privacy options rather than the FileVault options. Have you tried System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General > Disable automatic login.

    Have you gone into System Preferences > User & Groups > Logon Options ?

    Unlock it first than you can make a change to logging on

    In the middle of several books.
    1. System Preferences > Users & Groups > Change Password

    2. If you have been using your iCloud login, change that by creating a new password separate from the Yosemite default.

    3. Set new password and enable it.

    You should be good to go now.

    Thanks guys! My problem is that in the Automatic Login dropdown menu there are only the Guest User or Off...why my username (administrator) is not there?

    edit: never mind, solved. Thank you very much!
