By default Automatic Login feature is disabled for every user you create in Ubuntu for security reasons, but you can enable this feature which will not ask you to enter your account password when you try to login next time in your account.

- In the User Accounts dialogue, select the user for which you want to enable automatic login.
- Then click on the Unlock button on the top right part of the dialogue as shown in the following image to enable changes for this user account. It will ask you to authenticate you request by entering your password. Do it and proceed to next step.
- Now click on the grey area saying “OFF” for Automatic Login which will change the text to “ON” as shown in following image.
