After shutdown and boot, Opensuse 15.5 logs me in automatically even though auto login is not selected in yast

The topic pretty well describes the issue. When I tried logging out before shutdown, the automatic login didn’t happen the very next time I booted. Then, on the following shutdown and boot, it went back to unauthorized auto login.

First, you need to give some information, such as the Desktop you use and the Display Manager.

kde? Gnome? Xfce?

Display Manager, run the following in a terminal, select all the output, including the command.
Use Ctrl-Shft-C to copy it to the clipboard.

su -
update-alternatives --display default-displaymanager

Come back here, click on the </> symbol in the forum editor window, and paste the output in there.

Thanks for responding and giving such clear instructions.

I am using kde.
