What kind of password ***** you want to use to prevent from unauthorised access to your new HP laptop? Two options:

1. Computer password: Set it up in the computer's BIOS mode (Setup Utility).

2. Windows password: Set it up with your Windows by adding a user account (local or Microsoft account).

Computer password ***** high priority that Windows password. All you may have both if you do prefer this way (more safe but less convenient).
