  2. Can't create pin for login. Pin stopped working

    Hi Kevin,

    To resolve your concern about creating pin to your computer, we suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Navigate to C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Microsoft\NGC (click to get permission when prompted).
    • Delete the contents of that folder (delete everything in that folder, but leave that folder and everything above it).
    • Go back to settings, accounts, sign in options.
    • Your non-working pin will now be gone, and you can just click 'add a pin' and set it again.

    Let us know how it goes.

  3. Stop asking me to create a PIN!

    Solved!!!!

    After making the changes in Group Policy, it still didn't work and it still asked me to create a pin. I almost gave up, then I stumbled on the solution:

    Change your user account from a "Microsoft account" to a "Local Account" . (Setting > Account > Your info > "Sign in with a local account instead"). I don't know if this work in combination with the Group Policy setting or not, but I do know that, for me,
    the GP setting alone didn't do it.

    (MS really wants you to log in with a Microsoft account instead of a local account. During the initial setup of a new computer, it is really easy to miss the step to create a local account and instead you are "convinced" to create a MS account. This is
    exactly what happened to me. This is a new PC for me in 3 years and in the past, I have never seen this PIN and MS account things.)

    History:

    The reason I don't want to use the PIN is that using the PIN, my other networked computers cannot access this new PC.. When researching this problem, I saw that using the PIN is the problem. So I changed the logon to password. But ever since the change,
    it kept asking me to create a PIN. I researched for a solution and did the changes in Group Policy as suggested here, but it didn't work. Then I remember seeing something about Local Account in dealing with the network problem. That's what gave me the idea
    and it worked.

    Hope it will work for you too.

    Cheers.

    Stop Win 10 from asking me to create a pin every time I reboot

    Yes, I can confirm that.
    Just like Ztrucker said...…………..
    (A) If clicking at the Microsoft Account box on the right first > sign in with the password > it will go to desktop without prompting for Pin create.
    (B) If entering the password into the password box right away without clicking at the Microsoft Account box first, then create Pin prompt will appear.
    That registry editing tutorial ( A Workaround to Disable PIN Login in Windows 10 / 8 | Password Recovery ) is not necessary. I can keep the "value" at 1 and still be able to avoid prompting to create PIN if I use method (A)

    Just one extra step on sign in. I can live with that.

    Thing is, I do not have this issue on the rest of my 4 computers.
