"What auto login does is, upon boot (or restarting X Windows), the system will automatically login to that particular user. This way the user does not have to interact with the log in prompt. The one major downfall to this is that no password has to be given in order for your user to be logged in. This can be a security issue. So if you are concerned with security, this is not for you.
