when i install garuda it asked do you want to log in without password i checked that box but nw i want lock at my login screen

There are many Garuda editions - KDE Dr460nized, GNOME, Wayfire, Sway, BSPWM, Qlite, LXQT-KWin, etc. Different DEs have different settings. Unless you mention which DE you're using, I can't help you.

The "Automatic log in" option must be enabled, you can disable it.

it just only ask which account do you want to log in not password

@Thr-Eshan What do you exactly want? You want to enter password to log in, right? Then you should disable the Automatically log in option.

Write sddm in the search open first result then go behavior you'll find it

Installing with no password is always a bad option. You'll most likely continue to have problems unless you, as Administrator, give your user a passwd.

Good tip. Fortunately, Calemares doesn't allow installing without setting user password. All you can have is "Log in automatically" or similar, which is managed by display managers like SDDM / LightDM / GDM / etc.
