    Windows Hello Face, Fingerprint, PIN sign-in options unavailable


    I have a brand new Dell XPS 1330/9300 with Win 10 Pro 1909 with myself setup as the only admin account. The sign-in options for Windows Hello Face, Fingerprint, and PIN are greyed out with a message saying "This option is currently unavailable - click to learn more". I enabled biometrics in the GP editor and made sure all software and drivers are updated but this still does not fix the issue. Oddly, I added a 2nd user admin account and that account allows for these options and later deleted it. Dell was of no help and could not reach Windows support.


    Anyone have any solutions?

    :)

    Enable Fingerprint Sign In Without PIN Sign In (Windows Hello)


    I don't think you can , the PIN is a backup in-case the fingerprint fails.

    Enable Fingerprint Sign In Without PIN Sign In (Windows Hello)


    So I just reinstalled Windows 10 on my machine.

    Before I had it set up so that I could log in with a password or fingerprint.

    Now it seems my only options are (1) password only OR (2) password, PIN or fingerprint.

    I don't want PIN as a sign in option. But I have to enable PIN via "Windows Hello" before enabling Fingerprint sign in.

    And once I have fingerprint sign in enabled, if I remove the PIN I lose both PIN and fingerprint sign in options.

    Any ideas how I can set up password and fingerprint as my only two sign in options?
