Summary of this tutorial:

Start by installing and activating the Temporary Login Without Password plugin:

Once activated go to Users, Temporary Logins and click on Create New.

You will see a form where you need to enter information for the temporary login you want to add.

Provide an email address for the user, add their first and last name and select a user role for them. Be careful how high you set their user role.

Finally select the duration you would like for the temporary account to decide when you would like it to expire.

Don’t forget to submit to save your changes.

The success message will appear with the url that anyone can use to login to the temporary account you just added until the expiration date.

Visit Users, Temporary logins if you want to view or edit your list of temporary logins including the last login date.

    Great video! I need to create a user registration to protect a non-profit business site that will automatically expire the password on logout. The user would then be required to re-register if they wish to return to view the content at any point in the future. May I ask you to share your knowledge or methods you have, that would allow me to do this? I can't seem to find any tutorials on this subject as they all focus on generating lists or profits.
