    Hi and welcome to the Ten Forums!

    You will need to explain a little more about what you are trying to do. Are you logging in with a local account?

    Basically you have set a password as empty and this is not secure! A Microsoft account has to have a password but you can remove one for a local account. See the following tutorial for more details:

    Hope this helps!

    I have local account and Microsoft account. if I tried to convert internet account to local , I can't set local password. it's type complexity required, also if I leave it empty , same thing

    in local account I cant change password or remove it both in account settings or computer manger , it's appear there is problem in password checking routine!!

    Could you take the images of your password policy? Is your computer joined to a domain or not?
    Please check out this article:
    Change password policy settings - Windows Help

    Make sure the policy "Password must meet complexity requirements" is disabled.

    The settings of your account policies are correct. Are you using a Microsoft account (Windows live email address) for logging into Windows 10? Did you get the warning "meet password complexity requirements" from Windows logon screen or when you try to change the password from Control Panel? If possible, could you take some images as well? Thanks for your patience!

    Where are you from?

    The reason I ask is I made a MS account (based on a US IP address) to see if I could get bing points. I couldn't as the deal had finished but MS insisted on 2 major, 2 minor and numbers to make my password (they don't do that in Europe).
