Local login without typing in password, is it possible?

Hello all,


I have the following scenario: OS X installation has two users, who frequently log in and out. They don't want to type in passwords all the time at login. However, the users still need to have passwords, because the machine is exposed with services like SSH.


Is it possible to allow users to log in locally without typing in their password?

I hate to say no, but I think this is a no barring things like fingerprint software. You can, however, make their passwords as simple as possible (at the expense of security) so they have less typing to do to log in.
