Ubuntu has been on my Laptop for almost half a year now. I used to have a login password, then turned it off about two months ago. After reading this (http://www.faz.net/aktuell/wirtschaft/netzwirtschaft/einreise-am-flughafen-was-tun-wenn-der-grenzschutz-ans-handy-will-14881037.html) article (about people being prompted to unlock devices at airports) i decided to go back to a password in order to be able to protect my data.
Navigating to the system settings, unlocking the user account with the sudo password and changing the automatic login flag to 'off' and setting a password i though i would be prompted for a password again upon startup. This is NOT the case, ubuntu keeps loggin me in withoug a password.
What am i doing wrong? Am i missing something? Why is the system doing this? It is worrying me :S
Summary: Ubuntu 16.04 does not go back to prompting a password upon login after having been set to autologin about two months ago.
Any help or hint would be very much appreciated.
All the best from Germany, Hardovic
