How To: Disable Auto Login on Raspberry Pi OS Lite

Raspberry Pi OS Lite (available from https://www.raspberrypi.com/software/operating-systems/) is extremely light wait and has no Graphical User Interface (GUI) making it perfect for use as a server. The default auto login configuration is less than ideal for server use though.

Thankfully, it’s not too hard to disable it just by following these steps:

  1. Run sudo raspi-config
  2. Select 1 System Options
  3. Select S5 Boot / Auto Login
  4. Select B1 Console
  5. Select <Finish>
  6. Select <Yes> to reboot and apply changes

That’s all there is to it!
