    Windows 10 not letting me set a pin after registring a fingerprint


    Not sure if its a bug or not but windows will not let me set a PIN, it will let me insert my password and then nothing will come up after inserting my pin, and if i try to set a pin manually, itll get stuck on the blue spinner but it will let me do other things

    Has anyone else had this issue?

    Im running version 1903

    PIN and FingerPrint not working

    XPS 15 user having the same problem as those above (fingerprint and PIN not working). Windows Hello was working fine, but a recent update seems to have caused an issue with PIN registration and devices that have the fingerprint scanner. My windows desktop
    has no issues logging in with the PIN, only the XPS 15 laptop.

    Hopefully Microsoft can come up with a fix for this soon.

  3. fingerprint sign in isnt working or letting me set up

    Hello Samantha,

    Driver incompatibility is one of the possible reasons why fingerprint sign-in isn't working on your computer. For us to further isolate and assist you better with this, kindly follow the steps below:

    Step 1: Roll back drivers / use default drivers

    • Open Device Manager by right-clicking the Start button and choosing Device Manager from the list.
    • Locate your fingerprint driver and double click it to open its properties.
    • Click the Roll Back Driver button.
    This will install the previously installed driver instead of the one you’re currently using.

    To go back to the default drivers do the following:

    • Open Device Manager.
    • Find your fingerprint scanner driver.
    • Right-click it and choose Uninstall device.
    • Check Delete the driver software for this device and click
      Uninstall
      .

    Step 2: Update your drivers

    It's often better to use the latest driver optimized for Windows 10, so make sure that you visit your fingerprint scanner manufacturer and check for latest Windows 10 drivers.

    We also suggest visiting the article below to know more details about it.
