    All Windows Hello sign-in options are unavailable fc2c6f9a-5949-4e47-98a0-d7b5d8e97f3b?upload=true.png I just purchased a ASUS Zenbook Flip S and Windows Hello worked when I set up my laptop, however right after setup, Face, Fingerprint and PIN sign-in options all say "This option is currently unavailable". I only set up PIN and Fingerprint during setup and I can still sign-in with them no problem, I just can't access them in settings.

    Windows Hello Face Sign In Option Unavailable

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I appreciate the efforts taken by you in resolving the issue. I understand that you are unable to use Windows Hello Face and PIN on your computer. I’ll certainly assist you with the issue.



    However, please let us know:



    • Are you aware of any changes made to the computer prior to this issue?


    You may want to refer the troubleshooting steps mentioned below and see if that helps:



    Reset Windows Hello Biometric Database:



    1. Press Windows key + R, to open Run dialog box.
    2. Type services.msc and click on OK.
    3. Look for Windows Biometric Service, double click on it and click on Stop.
    4. Now, go to C:\Windows\System32\WinBioDatabase, take a backup of all the files inside the WinBioDatabase folder.
    5. After taking a backup of the files, delete all the files.
    6. Now, open Services by following step 1 and 2, and restart the Windows Biometric Service.
    7. Go to Start >> Settings >> Accounts >> Sign-in options and register the Face data again.

  3. Windows Hello Face Sign In Option Unavailable

    My Windows Hello Face was working perfectly until recently both my Windows Hello Face and the Windows Hello PIN stopped working, so I could only use my password to sign in. I tried to set it up again in settings but it says that "This option is currently
    unavailable", and then "Something went wrong. Try again later." below that. There is a "Set Up" option but I can't click that.

    I have an HP Pavilion x360 Convertible 14-ba0xx.

    Any help would be much appreciated! All Windows Hello sign-in options are unavailable :)
