Login Password

When I installed Mint, I selected to have login automatically. Is there a way to make it so I have to enter a password at welcome screen?

Nah, don't do that. What you want to do is run the Login Window tool from the Mint menu, switch to the Users tab and remove your username at the bottom where it says Automatic Login.
