    sign in option with password and picture not available in settings! please help me....


    I don't know what happened, at first i was logged into a microsoft account on my device, but I don't really know if it's my microsoft or local account, but I remember it was a microsoft outlook account.


    then after I installed windows again what happened was after I logged in using the same outlook account, he asked to enter the password several times. I think the request is not to enter the account password. maybe another password. I didn't know. And I remember correctly my windows password and my outlook account. but the words "password incorrect" still appear in front of my face. and I was forced to click next, and he asked me to make a Pin.


    finally I managed to add a microsoft account in my new windows that. but after I checked the sign in option section, strangely something that surprised me was the absence of login options with passwords and pictures, of course I felt strange and I desperately needed that option. please help me....!


    my windows version is windows 10 home single language.

    version 20H2, HP Inc.

    original product key is activated.

    Feature and driver Up-To-Date.

    missing picture password option in sign-in options window, does not appear to exist! PLEASE HELP

    I recently reset my pc back to factory default... Before doing this I was able to use picture password as my sign-in option but now, that option is no longer available to me and this poses a big issue for me, personally.

    When I go to the sign-in option window, this is the only options I see here:


    sign in option with password and picture not available in settings! please help me.... 157e36dc-edbf-4205-86e4-914162599cd6?upload=true.png


    Yes, everything is fully updated with the latest creators edition and all current windows updates (according to when I attempt to install updates, it says "Your up to date"

    I've also performed all the suggestions I found online per the ways to fix this.

    here's a run down of all the steps taken:

    using the 'run' box I typed in the following:

    Step 1:

    1. secpol.msc and press Enter.
    2. In the left pane of Local Security Policy window, navigate to Local Policies -> Security Options.
    3. On the right hand side, double-click on the “Interactive Logon: Do Not Display Last User Name” setting.

    Steps 2 & 3 were given to turn off picture password, I wanted to turn it on, so the suggestion to select enabled to turn it off, I chose disabled and instead of a value set at 1, I set it at 0

    Step 2:

    1. Type gpedit.msc and press Enter.
    2. In the left pane of Local Group Policy Editor, navigate to:

      Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Logon
    3. In the right pane, you can see a policy named “Turn off picture password sign-in“, double-click on it and set it to Enabled (I selected DISABLED instead). Finally, click Apply / OK and reboot to apply the changes.
    Step 3:

    Disable Picture Password Sign-in with Register Editor

    1. Press the Windows key + R to open the Run box. Type regedit and press Enter. This will open the Registry Editor.
    2. Next, navigate to following entry:

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System

      If the System subkey doesn’t exist, you’ll have to create it.
    3. In right pane, look for an entry named BlockDomainPicturePassword. If it doesn’t exist, right-click on empty space and create a DWORD value and assign name as BlockDomainPicturePassword.
    4. Double-click the BlockDomainPicturePassword value and set it to 1. I SET THE VALUE TO 0
    YES! I RESTARTED PC, NO GOOD! I am still unable to even see PICTURE PASSWORD as a sign-in option in the sign-in options window, per the image above

    These are the only steps I've been able to locate to hopefully resolve my issue but none of these has panned out.

    I really need some assistance here to resolve this specific issue.

    I WANT TO BE ABLE TO SIGN IN USING MY SELECTED PICTURE PASSOWRD, but how am I supposed to do that, if that option is not even available to me? I.e. windows hello face (unavailable on my machine. windows hello fingerprint (also unavailable). windows hello
    PIN. and security key. BUT NO PICTURE PASSWORD!!!

    Please, can somebody help me fix this?

    I've been at this for 3-1/2 days now, attempting to fix it on my own and retrying, retrying and retrying more, the same steps over and over again (because the above steps are the only ones I've found that even remotely addresses my issue, somewhat) and I
    feel like I'm about to lose my mind...

    thanks

  3. 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.

    Sign in with picture

    Hi Dretcanu,

    In order for you to create a picture password for both accounts, you need to make sure that both your admin and guest accounts are password protected as the picture password will be used instead of your password.

    Since you want to enable picture password on both accounts, login with your admin account first, and then follow these steps to create a picture password:

    • Open Settings, then go to Accounts.
    • On the left pane, click Sign-in options.
    • Scroll down to the Picture password, then click Add.
    • The welcome page for the picture password will appear. Type in your user account password, then click
      OK.
    • Click Choose a picture. Select a picture, then click
      Use this picture
      .
    • Draw the three gestures on the picture, confirm it, and hit Finish.

    Once done, logout of your admin account, then login to your guest account. Follow the same steps provided above to create a picture password for your guest account.

    To log in with the picture password, click Sign-in options when you are asked for your password. Select the picture symbol and enter the gestures you have set. You should now be logged in to your admin or guest account using the picture
    password.

    Let us know if you need further help.

    Regards.
