You can define an account where a password isn’t required to login. Go to System Settings, User Accounts and call up the user profile. This screen appears:

No Password

If Automatic Login is set ON then no password is required to log on.

Edit 1 - Login without Password

As https://askubuntu.com/users/367990/byte-commander pointed out in comments you can click on a user’s password and this screen will appear:

No Password Required

Click on the Action drop down menu and select Log in without a password
