Remove password protection from passport

The password protection is a constant, huge inconvenience. How can i completely eliminate the need to type in a password in order to access my WD My Passport?

Use the application software that came with the drive to disable the password.

and consider next time purchasing the cheaper WD Elements Portable which has no password or encryption features

i personally don’t need passwords or encryption … so why pay for it ?

(that’s why the Passports are more expensive than the Elements)
