How do I open Fedora 19 without a user password?

My user name is mz2, and I want to login without a password.

Hi, could you please try and add a bit more detail to your Q? It's unclear what exactly it is you're looking for. –  slm Jun 16 at 16:59

Note that this is almost never a good idea. Even on a single user machine in your own home. –  Shadur Jun 16 at 20:35

According to the passwd man page:

-d     This is a quick way to delete a password for an account. It will
          set the named account passwordless. Available to root only.

so you can do this (as root):

passwd -d mz2

then you can login without a password

You can do it two ways:

  1. Open System Settings => Users => Click icon Automatic Login

  2. Edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf, add theses lines:

[daemon]
AutomaticLoginEnable=true
AutomaticLogin=mz2
