Re: The opposite of MS

... why do they insist that on a tablet that will never leave her house, she HAS to enter either a login password or PIN on startup?

The password on a Chromebook isn't a password for the Chromebook, it's a password for the Google account that the Chromebook is using. Without a password anyone could access that account from anywhere on any device.
