  2. Windows 10 password security

    Hi James,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you. I’ll certainly help you with this.

    • What is the exact error message you get when you enter the password?
    • Did you reset the password again?

    If you haven't, I suggest you to Reset your password
    and check.

    While entering the password, I suggest you to enter the password from the On screen keyboard. To do so, follow these steps.

    • On the Lock screen, click on the Ease of access button near the Power button.
    • Enable the Onscreen keyboard and enter the password.
    • Before hitting enter, click on the eye logo to confirm the password and hit
      enter.

    Hope this helps you. Let us know if the issue persist. We'll be glad to assist you.

    Thank you.
