That depends on the data itself.  If you don't mind if everyone
in the world reads the data that's behind that button (and
everything else on your machine is not *PUBLIC *EXCLUDE), then
yes, a default password would work for you.  But if the data has
any level of sensitivity, then a password check is simply the
responsible thing to do.

A user profile does not simply provide access to a file, it
provides access to a system.  If you provide entry to your system
without authentication, then it's darn hard maintain that you
have security.
