Eliminating need for password on a member

I'm holding an online summit of pre-recorded sessions being released over 10 days. I created this area in the members site. Is there a way to eliminate having to enter a password when you sign up? It's free, and I want people to sign-up with their name and email so I can send them updates during the summit, but I don't need them to have a password as anyone can typically join this. I'm afraid that having to make a password. might be deterring some people from signing up. How can I eliminate that option. Also is there a way to eliminate the automatic email sent out that makes them need to confirm?

I would like to remove creating a password when members join a member site area. Is this possible?

Member sites require passwords because users must be authenticated to protect access to the on-page content. You cannot remove the requirement for a password.

However, if you don't want to password-protect a page, you can place that page in the Not Linked section of your site's Pages panel. This page will then be public but you can help to prevent visitors stumbling across them by opening each page's settings panel and using the Hide Page from Search Results option.
