    How to change Personal Vault verification method from email to pin after initial setup


    I just set up Personal Vault in One Drive. I did not see an option to use a pin. I currently enter my email address and receive a code to access. How can I change my verification method from email code to pin?

    :)

    How to change verification method for Personal Vault? (If at all possible)

    On

    Protect your OneDrive files in Personal Vault

    I read

    "

    We guide you through setting up your Personal Vault with a strong authentication method or a second step of identity verification, such as your fingerprint, face, PIN, or a code sent to you via email
    or SMS.


    "

    Vainly tried to find out more details about PIN-verification. How does it work?

    Right now, I have to use a code sent to my secondary email address. As said, I don't know how it works, but would it be possible to change the verification method to PIN ? IF...IF ... that is easier, i.e. less fuss.

    Note that my PC is -not- locked in any way: I have disabled that, which is being a different story.

    Thanks.

    How to change the One Drive Personal Vault PIN?

    Hi TT,

    I have just stumbled upon a way to change the PIN. After I opened the Personal Vault in my mobile, I click the pull down menu at the top and select Personal Vault Settings. There give me the Personal Vault PIN.

    Thanks for your kind help!

    Can you get access to the OneDrive Personal Vault when offline?

    Good question! Personal Vault is a protected area in OneDrive that you can only access with a strong authentication method or a second step of identity verification, such as your fingerprint, face, PIN, or a code sent to you via email or SMS. Your locked
    files in Personal Vault have an extra layer of security, keeping them more secured in the event that someone gains access to your account or your device. Yes, even if it's offline it will still need to authenticate.
