  2. Different Pin Or Password For Lock Screen & Sign-in Screen?

    I am wondering if it is possible to have a separate Pin or Password for the lock screen and sign in screen?

    For example:
    My Microsoft Account Pin and Password is known to more than myself in my home. I do not want to change the Microsoft Account Password. If I change the Pin at the lock screen, others can just use the Microsoft account Password instead.

    What I wish to do is lock my computer and when presented with the lock screen, have the Password for that different than the sign in screen. The only option presented at the first lock screen is either a Pin or Password.

    The computer will be doing things in the background while it is locked.

    Is it even possible to do what I want?

  3. Lock screen automatically with password

    Hi Kenneth,

    To have a better view on this concern, are you referring with Lock Screen timeout? If so, we suggest that you follow the steps below:

    • Click on Start menu.
    • Go to Settings.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Under Sign-in options, click on Lock screen.
    • Go to Screen timeout settings.
    • Change the value under Screen.

    Also, no need to create a pin code since you already have your Microsoft account password. You can sign in using your account.

    Let us know if you need any further assistance and we will be glad to help.
