    Require sign-in option in Sign in options roll back to "Never" randomly.


    Hi, I recently bought this computer on Windows 10, and I quickly changed security settings : I set up a password, pin, lock screen background etc...But a settings keep changing : the one below...I always set this "require sign in" option to "When PC wakes up from sleep" but it regularly changes to "Never" even if I didn't change any other settings ! So does anyone have an answer to this odd bug In my opinion, it is a bug ? Thanks in advance !Dacapo,

    :)

  2. Cannot change the require sign-in options in sign in options

    Hi Gerad,

    I understand the inconvenience caused to you regarding the change of Required sign-in options but in RED is stated that "authentication is required when this pc awake from sleep and security policies on PC are preventing to change
    settings". I will certainly assist you.

    Please answer the below question to assist you better.

    Did you make any changes in the power options of the system?

    Follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    • Press Windows + X and then click on
      Control Panel.
    • Click on the Power options.
    • Click on Required a password on Wakeup
    • In the Password protection on Wake up click on
      Don’t required password.
    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.

  4. Require sign-in option in Sign in options roll back to "Never" randomly.

    Sign-in options: Require sign-in "When PC wakes up from sleep" missing

    I just tried step 4 in option 5 to disable require sign-in on wakeup. This changed nothing.

    Again, the current behavior already does NOT require sign-in on wakeup. The desired behavior is for it to indeed REQUIRE sign-in on wakeup.

    If anything, step 3 in option 5 would fix it, but as I mentioned in my last post, this did NOT fix it either.

    Is there anything else I could try? If not, I will open a new thread where I state my original problem in more clear terms. Perhaps I gave too much information and it became confusing about what my issue was. I simply wanted to be thorough to eliminate the need for "try restarting your machine" or "have you changed this setting that does exactly what you want".
