  1. PIN login problems when not connected to Internet


    Why am I unable to log into Windows 10 with PIN when I am not connected to the Internet? This is a nuisance as I just want to use my laptop locally without having to have the Internet connection.

  4. PIN login problems when not connected to Internet

    Login problem with no internet connection.

    Hello Lizgill,

    We realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with not able to login to your system. We will certainly help you.

    For the new password to sync in your device the internet connection should work. As we see that you are using wireless connection, we suggest you to use Ethernet (Wired) Internet connection and then try to login. This is the best possible attempt
    we can do to see if you are able to login to your system. Once you are logged in we can proceed further with the network troubleshooting steps on your system.

    Let us know the status of the issue. We will be happy to assist you further.

    Thank you.
