    Need to have pin for each user that uses computer. During pre-boot and pin is asked for is it possible to have different pins per user account on computer? Such as two non-admin users and an admin user?

    Is it possible not to enter the password/PIN at Window startups?

    You may have missed a step. After the un-check, click apply, then the next screen will ask for the Pasword twice. Enter and OK. Then OK again. That should do it.

    Is it possible to remove both the need to enter a password AND pin?


    Just a note, I had to log in using the account password before I could assign a PIN. Might need to remove the PIN first.

    How to SWITCH login method from PIN to password

    If you get to step #5 and find that there is no option to remove the pin, this worked for me:

    • Click "I forgot my PIN"
    • Enter your account password where prompted
    • When prompted to create a new PIN, click "Cancel"

    This removed the existing PIN and went back to using the account password to log in and unlock the lock screen.
