    Accidentally clicked "Allow Organization to Manage Device" while downloading Skype for...


    Hello, sorry this is long


    I recently downloaded Skype for Business 2016 from the Microsoft app store on my Windows 10 Home and accidentally checked the box for "allow organization to manage device" while logging in. I didn't think anything was going to happen but....

    Next day when I turned the laptop on, the first thing I saw on the sign-in screen was a prompt to change my password because "my organization" wants me to change it to a 6 digit number. I changed it just so I can log in. Once logged in, I tried to change my windows hello pin again but wasn't even allowed to it was grayed out.


    To solve that, I searched google and followed what was said in this post: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/accidentally-clicked-allow-my-organization-to/528a0e3f-1642-4b88-9732-f35ecf644da4?page=1

    I removed the credentials related to the university email I used for skype, restarted the computer and was finally given the option to change my pin again i.e. it was no longer greyed out in my settings.

    BUT one problem remained: I still had the pin complexity thing set by "my organization" which I'm guessing is my university?. So I still couldn't change my pin back to the 4 digit number that it used to be this is my father's laptop and he wants the pin to be 4 digits.


    So I searched google again and was given two options:

    1 change the pin complexity through the Local Group Policy Editor thingy. But I can't because this is a Windows Home not a Windows Pro. The policy editor thing just doesn't exist on this laptop.


    so my only option is 2 change pin complexity through the Registry. I CAN do this, I just have to be careful, but I'm still worried and that's why I'm posting this.

    I'm worried because I noticed that every time I log in with that university email which is different than the administrator email, the option to change my Windows Hello Pin is greyed out AGAIN. So I have to disconnect it from the laptop and then the pin thing works again etc etc...


    SO...does that mean if I change the pin complexity requirements in the registry, restart my computer, change the pin back to 4 digits then once again log in to skype using my university email, am i gonna be asked, ONCE AGAIN, to change my pin to 6 digits after i shut down and turn on the computer like what happened the very first time refer to first paragraph ?? Do you get what I mean? Am I going to end up doing all that for nothing and going back to square one? I don't wanna test it out...especially since this is not my laptop...and you shouldn't be playing around in the registry. So what do you advise I do?


    All I truly want is for this "organization" to get off the laptop, to stop "managing the device". Make it go away! Undo the changes it did to the laptop!!

    I uninstalled and reinstalled skype, nothing happened


    Thank you. Sorry that was a very long post.

    I would very much appreciate some help please.

    :)

    Accidentally clicked "Allow my organization to manage my device" in Teams

    I've been working from home for a few months and recently needed to re-sign in to my Microsoft Teams app using my work credentials. I mistakenly blasted through the prompts and left the "Allow my organization to manage my device" box checked. This introduced
    a couple of problems:

    1. I do NOT want my work to have ANY access to my device

    2. Now when I try to unlock my device, the four-digit PIN I've been using for years is no longer good enough and needs to be changed by "my organization". I use a four-digit simple PIN as a small-step lock that is easy for me to type in. Upgrading to a six-digit
    PIN or a traditional account password as my primary unlocking does not suit my needs.

    I've been able to remove my work account from my Windows profile and signed into Teams again, this time leaving the box unchecked. However, even after rebooting, the PIN entry issue persists. I'm now concerned I don't have the necessary privacy and control
    over my own device that I used to have.
