    PIN is required to login

    I used to login windows with my fingerprint.

    But now it required to login with my PIN and I forgot my PIN (even didn't remember that I set a PIN or not)

    I check on "forget PIN" but no response.

    I scan fingerprint and it required my PIN....

    How can I login with my fingerprint only?

    OSK PIN login on non-touch device

    Hello,

    I suggest you to create a PIN for your device and try the on screen keyboard to login to the same.

    You may follow the steps below to create PIN protection for your device.


    • Go to Settings and select account.

    • Click on sign in option and Go to PIN option.

    • Now click on Add and set PIN for login.

    You can use the same PIN to login to your device using the on screen Keyboard from ease of access option and verify the result.

    Please get back to us with updated status. We will be happy to assist you further.
