Re: How do I turn off authentication?
On the desktop drop down menu navigate
From here you can set the system to automatically log in. However, anytime you perform a task that requires admin or elevated privileges you will still be asked for a password.
I do not know of any way to disable or remove the authentication feature completely, but there is a work around. Rather than logging in under your username, you can log in as root. Although, this is (Officially) not recommended. Nor do I endorse the practice. Still, it is you computer and your choice.
