  1. I cannot change my pin


    I forgot my pin so I am trying to change it. but when I try to change it asks for my pin which then I press I "I forgot my pin". This then just tells me to go to the exact same place I am right now to change my pin.

    This is what I'm getting:

    Change pin > Click "I forgot pin" > Go to sign in options to change the pin.
    It's just a never-ending loop

    I have searched up many different ways to try to fix this but can't find a solution that works

    :)

    I cannot change my pin

    Clear "Pin suggested" list in People Bar

    Does anybody know how to clear the "Pin suggested" list on the "People bar"?

    Contacts are added to the "Pin suggested" list once you've pinned and unpinned them. But there seems to be no obvious way to remove them from that list.

    After playing around with this feature and pinning and unpinning many dummy contacts, it's rather annoying to see them in the "Pin suggested" list when you click on the "My People" icon in the taskbar.
