    Windows 10 asking for password instead of PIN after waking from sleep


    I have set up a pin, when I start or restart the laptop, windows 10 asks for the pin, however when the laptop wakes from sleep, it asks for the pin. How can I set it to also ask for the pin after waking from sleep?

    :)

    Login switches to password instead of pin by itself upon wake


    Hello.

    I have a weird issue with Windows 10 Pro x64.
    Using microsoft account I setup a PIN. Most of the time it woks fine - when computer wakes up it asks for my pin. However time to time for no apparent reason when wakes up it asks for for password instead, I have to switch to pin at login screen, then it works fine for a while again.

    Anyone know what causing it and how to fix it (I don't want it ever ask for password by default)?

    Thank you.

    Windows 10 asks for password instead of PIN

    I restarted my Windows 10 laptop and out of the blue, the login screen decides to ask for a password instead of my PIN which it usually does. Now I don't even remember if iIever set up a password, but if I did, I am very certain that there is only one I
    would have used, but it says it's incorrect. I want to ask if there is a way to make it ask for my PIN instead.

    Also, for some reason it isn't showing internet connection even though i have it connected through ethernet.

    I'm having the same issue since installing Bitdefender. Had Avast installed (paid version) but it went wonky and started blocking email along with other weird issues. It seems like it only happens when the PC is off overnight. I can reboot and get the PIN again, but when I shut down for the night, I always get the password. It's really annoying. Login was simple before, now I have to pay close attention. Wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have a 25+ digit VeraCrypt password before it. I'm considering getting rid of the password altogether.
