    Forgot challenge phrase answer after failed PIN


    So I entered the PIN I always use, got locked out of my PC. It brought me to the challenge phrase screen and I forgot the answer. I've had this probably with the challenge phrase before and I've tried to remove it several times. It won't let me back out to sign in options to sign in with the microsoft account instead. I've waited several hours, tried turning it off and on again, all sorts of stuff. I'm stuck on the challenge phrase screen. any help?

    :)

    Hi and thanks for reaching out. My name is Anthony.

    I'm Independent Advisor and I'm happy to assist you.

    I came across to your post and wanted to assist.I hope we can work together to find a solution for you.

    First, "Challenge Phrase" is a new approach taken by Microsoft to thwarting brute force attacks or cyber trespassers. This attack involves a simple process of trying all common or likely PIN codes over and over until the correct code is finally discovered.
    When a PIN gets entered incorrectly four times in a row, users are sent to a different screen where they are requires to enter a specific phrase.

    May I know what are you trying to do before the challenge phrase prompted?

    And what do you mean by nothing happens? Did this mean you where directed to another windows?

    Kindly give further details so I can suggest or give you a step by step procedure to fix this.

    Thank you and Keep Safe.
