[openFATE 312547] No more auto log-in as default
Feature changed by: Satoru Matsumoto (HeliosReds)
Feature #312547, revision 2
Title: No more auto log-in as default

- openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
+ openSUSE Distribution: Duplicate of #312548
+ Master status: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Kim Leyendecker (openlhag)
Partner organization:

In the installer of openSUSE 11.4 (and I guess also in 11.3, 11.2 and
11.1) the toolbox "log in with this user automaticly" or something like
this is choosen as default. That means, if you just click on "next"
during installation, you will auto log in with your user, when you
start your system. This happens without any password-check. This might
be good for people who just want to work with their PC and don´t think
about the system. But it´s a big security risk. Think of you got
personal files on your harddrive, and your user is logged-in
automaticly. Now, other people can easy get access to your /home dir.
They just need to start your PC.
So, please, disable this by default!
