    How do I disable Windows Hello - facial recognition


    In the last few days, I have noticed that my Surface is trying to ID my face at the password screen. I have never enabled Hello and I don't want to enable it. I want to continue to use my password for login and unlocking the lock screen.


    I cannot turn off Hello in sign-in options. The only available option is "Set up".

    :)

    Hello Bill,

    We need to do further investigation on your concern so that we will know why the facial recognition quit working:

    • Have you recently made any changes/updates prior to this issue?
    • Is there an error message when you try to sign using facial recognition?
    • What is the make and model of your computer?

    In the meantime, I would suggest that you perform the troubleshooting steps in this
    article.

    We will wait for your response.

    Regards.
