Hi guys, im looking to set up my pc such that if my USB key is connected during boot up, no password is needed or the USB key is the only password.

This way i can just plug the USB key during boot up and unplug it afterwards without actually typing any password.

Is there a way to do this?

The closest you can get to your request is using Yubikey.

See the threads below.

EDIT:
The Yubikey may no longer work with VeraCrypt due to the PIM prompt on the bootloader screen added in 1.12 version.
