  1. Want to sign on with PIN instead of Password


    I had that annoying and popular problem from HP Client Security asking me to remember passwords, so I signed onto HP Client Security to turn it off.


    In doing that, I put set up my Windows password. Now, no matter what settings I change (in both the HP Client Security or on the Windows sign on option), it asks for my password instead of my PIN to sign on after I've locked or signed off.


    Nothing works, I CANNOT sign in with my PIN anymore and it's a hassle to put in my long password. Please help.

    :)

  2. Remove sign in pin

    Hi Joel,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.

    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.
    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.

    Cannot sign into user account with pin instead of password


    Build 9926, after setting up a dual install of Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, you should be able to sign into a user account (std.) using a pin instead of a password. The account uses a Microsoft account and when trying to personalize the sign-in to a pin, appears to show the normal screen progression that the pin is accepted, confirmed using the password, but the after signing out and trying to go back into the user account, no pin is offered. Only password sign in available.

    Anyone else seeing this problem? Solutions? I tried going into group policy and found pin sign in by default is disabled. I enabled the policy, but that does not correct it.
