How to Remove Email from Windows 11 Login Screen


By default, the email address associated with your Windows account is displayed next to your username and profile picture on the Windows 11 sign-in screen. Thankfully, if you’re not comfortable with the idea of anyone being able to tap a few buttons and see the email address associated with the Windows account on that computer, you can easily adjust the settings on that computer to hide your email address so it’s no longer displayed on the Windows login screen.

Some of the images associated with the steps are included inline below. All images associated with these steps can be seen in the embedded YouTube video.
