  3. Disabling User Passwords Disables PIN and Hello?

    Hello Eric,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft community and welcome to the windows 10 Family.

    From the description provided, I understand that the sign in option is not working after you disabled the option for PIN input for password.

    At this point, I would suggest you to deploy the
    System Restore option in Windows.

    This option takes your PC back to an earlier point in time, called a system restore point. Restore points are generated when you install a new app, driver, or Windows update, and when you

    create a restore point manually
    . Restoring won’t affect your personal files, but it will remove apps, drivers, and updates installed after the restore point was made.


    • Right-click (or press and hold) the Start button, and then select Control Panel.

    • Search Control Panel for Recovery.

    • Select Recovery > Open System Restore > Next.

    • Choose the restore point related to the problematic app, driver, or update, and then select
      Next > Finish.

    In order to disable the PIN sign in option in Windows 10, refer to the below steps.

    Step 1: Access PC settings and open
    Users and accounts
    .

    Step 2: Select Sign-in options and tap the
    Remove
    button under PIN.

    Note: you can navigate to the same path in order to re-enable the PIN.

    Hope the above information is helpful. If you need further assistance, we would be happy to help you.

    Thank you.

    How to disable Windows Hello

    Hi Tom,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand how frustrating it could be when things do not work the way they are expected to. However, we can try a few steps and see if we can disable Windows Hello permanently, but before we try those steps, may I know:



    What is the version of Windows 10 installed on the computer?

    Did you notice any changes on the computer prior to this issue?



    Troubleshooting methods:



    Method 1: Using Group policy settings.

    If you are on Windows 10 Pro edition, you can change the group policy settings to disable PIN sign-in option for all users.



    • Open the Run dialog box by pressing the Windows key and the R key together.
    • Type GPEDIT.MSC and hit the Enter key.
    • Go to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Logon.
    • On the right side, double click on Turn on PIN sign-in and select
      Disabled.
    • Similarly disable the other Windows Hello options if any.
    • Exit the Group policy editor and reboot the computer.



      Method 2: Disabling Windows Hello in Registry.

      If setting Group policy doesn’t work, you disable the sign in options which should disable

      Windows Hello options in all user accounts.


    Disclaimer: The registry is a database in Windows that contains important information about system hardware, installed programs and settings, and profiles of each of the user accounts
    on the computer. Windows often reads and updates the information in the registry.

    Normally, software programs make registry changes automatically. You should not make unnecessary changes to the registry. Changing registry files incorrectly can cause Windows to stop working or make Windows report the wrong information.



    Please take a backup of the registry. Follow the steps given in the link below:

    How to back up and restore the registry in Windows



    • Open the Run dialog box by pressing the Windows key and the R key together.
    • Type Regedit and hit the Enter key.
    • When the Registry Editor opens, navigate to the following location:
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PolicyManager\default\Settings\AllowSignInOptions.
    • In the right pane, double click on the DWORD entry named
      value set it to 0.



      The above method will disable Windows Hello for all user accounts. If you want to re-enable

      it, change the DWORD entry Value back to
      1.



      Hope it helps.



      Thanks,

      Peer Samie
