How do I remove administrator passwords?

How do I remove passwords?! I don't know how to do anything related to Linux, I'm already starting to regret putting this on my computer. I'm the only one who uses my computer and I hate being forced to enter passwords every time I want to log in, if anyone can help me I'd appreciate it

Honestly, when I use Windows, it prompts for Admin privileges just as much...

Have you enabled Auto-Login?

On Zorin OS Core, open Settings and under the Users tab, Unlock to make changes, then set automatic Login to enabled.

I have auto-login disabled, but I also use a 4-digit PIN instead of a lengthy password.

If you also don't want to have to enter your password when using Terminal...

In Terminal, enter:

sudo visudo
or
sudo gedit /etc/sudoers
or
sudoedit /etc/sudoers

Enter the following at the very bottom of the file, then save (this assumes your user name is 'owner'... substitute your own user name):

# Allow {username} to execute any command
owner ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL

Note that this drastically lowers security, so only do this if you're familiar with Linux, you're careful online, and you don't randomly run every strange command you find online.
