Here is one thing you should remember – if you select ‘Log in automatically’, it will never ask you your password for authentication while you try to log in to your Ubuntu System. Its best if you give a very secure password for your installation. Ubuntu will inform you whether your password is secure or not.
If you select ‘Encrypt my home folder’ it will make all the files and folders in your home folder more secure from unauthorized viewing if you have multiple users using your computer. When you log in to your computer your files are seamlessly decrypted for just your session. If you are not sure, leave this box unchecked.
