  1. Cant sign in


    Hello!


    Earlier today I restarted my computer and got a Windows update. After it updated, I tried signing in, but faced problems doing so.

    The camera wasnt working for face id and I couldnt enter my pin as the text box for entering it didnt even appear. The message was: Something happened and your PIN isnt available and to enter the password it was telling me to connect a USB flash drive, and even after connecting it, It still didnt work.. I have no way to get into my computer.. Any help would be greatly appreciated!


    Thank You!

    :)

  2. password sign in

    Hi,

    About your concern with typing the password after being idle, it is actually recommended to activate for security reasons.

    If you wish to disable it, I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    • Go to Settings.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Click on Sign in options.
    • On the right side, you will see required sign in.
    • Change it to Never.

    Let us know how it goes.
