  3. challenge phrase

    Hi and thanks for reaching out. My name is Anthony.

    I'm Independent Advisor and I'm happy to assist you.

    I came across to your post and wanted to assist.I hope we can work together to find a solution for you.

    First, "Challenge Phrase" is a new approach taken by Microsoft to thwarting brute force attacks or cyber trespassers. This attack involves a simple process of trying all common or likely PIN codes over and over until the correct code is finally discovered.
    When a PIN gets entered incorrectly four times in a row, users are sent to a different screen where they are requires to enter a specific phrase.

    May I know what are you trying to do before the challenge phrase prompted?

    And what do you mean by nothing happens? Did this mean you where directed to another windows?

    Kindly give further details so I can suggest or give you a step by step procedure to fix this.

    Thank you and Keep Safe.

  4. Laptop locked out for challenge phrase

    Windows 11 is locked and shows challenge phrase (A1B2C3)

    When I tried these steps and tried to input my Recovery Key the numbers and letters were not all coming up onto the screen.

    I tried several times with the challenge phrase it did nothing. Left it overnight, came back and it's still asking for the challenge phrase.

    Challenge Phrase: How do I disable the ANNOYING Challenge Phrase? I've seen a dozen "fixes" on the Internet and none of them work. One option is to disable the PIN but the "Remove" button is grayed out. How do I enable this option?...
