    I suggest you to follow the below steps to remove the sign in pin/password options.

    • In the search box type sign-in-option.
    • Click on the sign-in-option.
    • Then you can find password/pin/picture password.
    • There you can remove the option and check.

    Thank you for your reply Person.

    Glad to know that the Pop up with the password manager is disabled with the above suggestion.

    Try the below suggestions to fix the issue with Signing in using PIN authentication.

    Steps 1: Launch the File Explorer.

    Step 2: Browse to this location, and delete the contents of the folder.

    C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Microsoft\NGC

    Step 3: Go to Settings (Press Windows
    and I key), Accounts > Sign in Options.

    Step 4: Click on Add a PIN and set your PIN.

    Step 5: Restart the computer and check the status of the issue.

    Hope it helps.
