  1. Sign in to computer without having to enter a password OR pin.


    I now use a LOCAL ACCOUNT to sign in to my computers WITHOUT a pin or password, BUT I get email after email telling me to verify my account. I have blocked, designated as junk, reported them as phishing and they still come everyday. I want to see if I start logging in with my MICROSOFT ACCOUNT, that the very annoying emails will stop, BUT I am only going to try this if I can set my computers to automatically sign in WITHOUT a password or pin, SO WHAT ARE THE STEPS TO SET THIS UP IN WINDOWS 10 Home and Pro ? I tried the same steps as I used with the LOCAL ACCOUNT to try it with MICROSOFT ACCOUNT and it didn't work. Thank you !

    :)

    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.
