I am quite new to Linux and VM's in general so there is a thing I don't get:
When starting the Whonix gateway or workstation from the host, there is no login screen, the VM's boot straight into the operating system. I can right-click and click "Lock screen" to bring the login screen with username/password, but not when booting.
I read other threads on this forum and people said it's supposed to be this way and there is no point in adding a login screen for a VM, and that you should password protect your host instead your VM's.
I don't understand why. Could someone please explain it in some detail?
