    Why should I be using a Pin code to log in to my laptop?

    Creation of a PIN in Windows 10 unlocks the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) on your system board for use in authentication to and from your device via Microsoft Passprt. It makes the device itself one of the factors in multi-factor authentication. It allows
    for Public Key Authentication and/or certificate based authentication to and from your device.

    Windows Hello works in conjunction with the PIN, TPM and Passport to further add a biometric factor to multi-factor authentication.

    All of this is in place to replace and abolish use of the inherently insecure Password Authentication of past OS versions.
