I should say that the danger in doing this on your Operating system is that if you forget your password you will also be locked out even though you are the owner of your device. That is the reason why most of use run  away from security anyway.

Therefore, follow me as I present the steps to you one after the other.

  • Go to ” Control Panel” and click on “Administrative tools”


  • Double click the ” Local Security Policy” and click on Account Policies”.
  • When it appears, double click on “Account Lockout policy” . You now have to double click on ” Account Lockout Threshold.


  • At the “Account Lockout threshold properties” window, enter the number of invalid logins.Click “OK” to close the Window.
