About two months ago, Microsoft has released its last major update, the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update version 1709. And since the release, many users have reported bugs in the build – one of which is a major bug where users have to login twice. Meaning to say, users have to enter their password twice before they can really log into Windows and access their files. If you are one of the users experiencing this issue, here are a couple of suggestions you must try to fix it.
Option #1 – Disable the option “Use my sign-in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update or restart”.

To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Start button and then the Settings icon to go to Settings.
  2. Go to the Update & Security section and select the Advanced Options.
  3. You should see the option “Use my sign-in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update or restart” in the next section – disable it and restart your PC. However, if it’s already disabled, proceed to the next option below.

Option #2 – Remove any duplicate usernames

To remove duplicate usernames, refer to the following steps:

  1. Tap Win key + R to open the Run dialog box.
  2. After that, type in netplwiz in the field and tap Enter or click OK to open User Accounts. In here, look for any duplicate usernames.
  3. If you found duplicate names, remove one of them.
  4. Restart your PC after that and you would be good to go.

Option #3 – Allow automatic login

  1. Tap the Win + R keys again to open the dialog box for Run.
  2. Type in netplwiz to open User Accounts.
  3. Unmark or uncheck the checkbox for “Users must enter a username and password to use this computer”.
  4. Click on OK and restart your PC.
  5. Open the dialog box again and then check the “Require a login box”.
  6. Restart your PC once more and check if the problem’s fixed.
