  2. Disabling User Passwords Disables PIN and Hello?

    Hello Eric,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft community and welcome to the windows 10 Family.

    From the description provided, I understand that the sign in option is not working after you disabled the option for PIN input for password.

    At this point, I would suggest you to deploy the
    System Restore option in Windows.

    This option takes your PC back to an earlier point in time, called a system restore point. Restore points are generated when you install a new app, driver, or Windows update, and when you

    create a restore point manually
    . Restoring won’t affect your personal files, but it will remove apps, drivers, and updates installed after the restore point was made.


    • Right-click (or press and hold) the Start button, and then select Control Panel.

    • Search Control Panel for Recovery.

    • Select Recovery > Open System Restore > Next.

    • Choose the restore point related to the problematic app, driver, or update, and then select
      Next > Finish.

    In order to disable the PIN sign in option in Windows 10, refer to the below steps.

    Step 1: Access PC settings and open
    Users and accounts
    .

    Step 2: Select Sign-in options and tap the
    Remove
    button under PIN.

    Note: you can navigate to the same path in order to re-enable the PIN.

    Hope the above information is helpful. If you need further assistance, we would be happy to help you.

    Thank you.

  3. Want to sign on with PIN instead of Password

    Thank you for your reply Person.

    Glad to know that the Pop up with the password manager is disabled with the above suggestion.

    Try the below suggestions to fix the issue with Signing in using PIN authentication.

    Steps 1: Launch the File Explorer.

    Step 2: Browse to this location, and delete the contents of the folder.

    C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Microsoft\NGC

    Step 3: Go to Settings (Press Windows
    and I key), Accounts > Sign in Options.

    Step 4: Click on Add a PIN and set your PIN.

    Step 5: Restart the computer and check the status of the issue.

    Hope it helps.
