    When I first got my XPS 9570 I set it up with Windows Hello fingerprint which works perfectly but I went into the setting today to add another fingerprint and seen the message in the picture attached. Any quick fixes for this?

    Looking forward to your response.

    FingerPrint - Without Windows Hello PIN

    Hi Xinete,

    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per your query, I like to inform you that; we cannot set the finger print Logon without setting the Windows hello pin. Windows hello pin will work as an alternative option to login to your computer through finger print Logon. Windows hello
    pin will help you to login to your computer if you are unable to login to your computer through finger print authentication.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to enable finger print logon.


    • Press Windows key + r and type
      gpedit.msc
      and hit Enter.

    • Select Administrative Templates under
      Computer Configuration.

    • Select Windows Components.

    • Select Biometrics.
    In Biometrics > consider that for a home system, you might enable the following:

    1) Allow the use of biometrics

    2) Allow users to log on using biometrics



    For information, refer to the below link:

    Biometric Facial Recognition – Windows Hello - Microsoft

    Hope it helps, reply to us with the status of your issue. We will be happy to assist you.
