How to force login after booting in a multiboot machine?

I login automatically (not asked my password). Manjaro is the main distro in my machinee, it runs GRUB.

I would like to be asked for a password in all my distros.

Is it a good idea to add a parameter to ‘GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX’ or to ‘GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT’ in /etc/default/grub ?

And in that case what should be added ? Perhaps “mode=3” ?
Would one parameter work for all linux distros ?

This is a per distribution setting.

Since your profile mentions Xfce, i suppose you use lightdm as login manager. Here is the documentation regarding how to enable autologin, so disabling it would require to do the opposite: LightDM - ArchWiki
