    Sign in Alternatives


    My new Dell Inspiron only offers fingerprint sign in when switched on. My previous Windows installations offered alternatives. e.g. PIN or password.

    I have set up a PIN and password but they are not available options at start up.



    Thanks

    :)

  2. password sign in

    Hi,

    About your concern with typing the password after being idle, it is actually recommended to activate for security reasons.

    If you wish to disable it, I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    • Go to Settings.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Click on Sign in options.
    • On the right side, you will see required sign in.
    • Change it to Never.

    Let us know how it goes.
