  1. I HATE the login pin. I can't get rid of it. HELP


    Win10 Pro


    I just got a brand new laptop, but it has Win10 Pro instead of Home like on my last PC. During setup it would not let me proceed without entering the pin. I hate using the pin. I just want to use my password, but there was no way with proceeding without it. I have it now, but I am trying to get rid of it and only use my password, but no iteration of "I forget" or Cancel or whatever is not working.


    Before anyone mentions it the "Remove" button is greyed out.


    Please help me remove this annoying thing. On my last laptop, it was easy to remove the pin option, with this one same manufacturer, same model, but with Win10 Pro, it is near impossible.


    Please don't tell me that once again Microsoft has determined what I am supposed to like.

    :)

    You may follow the steps below to create PIN protection for your device.


    • Go to Settings and select account.

    • Click on sign in option and Go to PIN option.

    Can't get rid of PIN login at startup

    I created a PIN login a while ago and then decided to get rid of it as it poor security - the regular Windows 10 login seems much more secure. I went to Settings/Accounts/Sign in options/PIN but there is no Remove button, only an Add button, which seems to indicate that the system isn't recognising the fact that a PIN login has been set up, even though it is always there at startup. I tried recreating it, which worked OK, but the Remove button still isn't there. Is there another way of getting rid of the PIN login?
