    Personal Vault - How to change verification from code to PIN ?


    Currently I am using a code sent to me by mail to unlock the Personal Vault.


    In fact, I need to unlock it twice.


    1st: r-click on OneDrive icon in the taskbar and select Unlock Personal Vault

    code is being sent


    2nd: r-click on OneDrive icon in the taskbar, select view online, enter my user-id and password,

    then

    within OneDrive, the personal vault shows as locked, r-click on it select Unlock code is sent


    2x a code and 1x user-id + pw.


    On Internet I read about the option to use PIN to unlock the Personal Vault.


    Q: How can I change from code to PIN ?


    Thanks!

    :)

    How to change verification method for Personal Vault? (If at all possible)

    On

    Protect your OneDrive files in Personal Vault

    I read

    "

    We guide you through setting up your Personal Vault with a strong authentication method or a second step of identity verification, such as your fingerprint, face, PIN, or a code sent to you via email
    or SMS.


    "

    Vainly tried to find out more details about PIN-verification. How does it work?

    Right now, I have to use a code sent to my secondary email address. As said, I don't know how it works, but would it be possible to change the verification method to PIN ? IF...IF ... that is easier, i.e. less fuss.

    Note that my PC is -not- locked in any way: I have disabled that, which is being a different story.

    Thanks.

    Personal Vault - How to change verification from code to PIN ?

    How to change the One Drive Personal Vault PIN?

    Hi TT,

    Thanks for your help. After I logged in through Web Browser, I right mouse click Personal Vault, there is no ''Option''. If I clicked to into Pesonal Vault, I also cannot see any ''Option''. I saw ''Details''. Even if I choose ''Details'', I don't see any
    option or ways to change PIN. Why is it so difficult to change the PIN that I'm using to open the Personal Vault when I open it on my mobile OneDrive\Personal Vault?
