When it comes to automatic logon or autologon solutions for Microsoft Windows, there are generally two different approaches.
One will store data in the system registry while the other in the Local Security Authority storage or LSASecret.
There are different variations on these two particular solutions ranging from pre-defined registry entry changes to using separate programs.
Data from the registry can be retrieved with RegEdit and data from LSASecret with any program (like LSASecretsView or LSASecretsDump) that can show the passwords it stores. You can access these locations remotely through the network so both solutions are insecure at best and make it simple for a determined party to steal logon and password information.
