    pin and fingerprint log in


    I keep having to setup my fingerprint and pin. At first it says I need a pin because it can't use my fingerprint due to a change in security settings. Then it says I can't use the pin. I have reset these things repeatedly.


    Here is the message: "Your PIN is no longer available due to a change to the security settings on this device."

    :)

    PIN and FingerPrint not working

    XPS 15 user having the same problem as those above (fingerprint and PIN not working). Windows Hello was working fine, but a recent update seems to have caused an issue with PIN registration and devices that have the fingerprint scanner. My windows desktop
    has no issues logging in with the PIN, only the XPS 15 laptop.

    Hopefully Microsoft can come up with a fix for this soon.

    pin and fingerprint log in

    Forgot Admin Password and Pin, usually use fingerprint but now requires pin!

    I usually use my fingerprint to log into the admin account which I do so rarely. I have a few other non-admin accounts on the laptop.

    When I tried to log into the admin account today with the fingerprint it asks for my pin as well?! This seems to be an issue with some new update. So now I cannot access the admin account since I do not know the pin or password (although the fingerprint
    is recognized and requires an extra pin to be approved)

    This is entirely retarded, do I no longer have admin access for Windows 10 and I DO NOT WANT TO WIPE OUT MY COMPUTER TO RESTORE ADMIN ACCESS BEFORE ANYONE SUGGESTS THAT.
