  3. Changing from password to pin

    Hi Alison,

    It's good to know that you want to use the PIN option to sign in to your computer. It's great as well that you've already set up a password, since setting up a password is one of the steps for you to be able to use the
    PIN option. Here's the steps on how to set up a PIN:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Choose Sign-in options, then click Add under the PIN option.
    • Follow the prompt until you finish the setup.

    Once done, you may lock your screen and try your PIN in
    Sign-in options
    .

    We're looking forward to your feedback.
