    Windows Hello: Finger print and Pin


    Hi!


    I somehow removed my pin once and changed it. Then I totally removed it afterwards. Then, I couldn't add a new pin. At the same time, I also can't set up my fingerprint. What can I do to fix this? I can't click on set up or add.

  2. FingerPrint - Without Windows Hello PIN

    Hi Xinete,

    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per your query, I like to inform you that; we cannot set the finger print Logon without setting the Windows hello pin. Windows hello pin will work as an alternative option to login to your computer through finger print Logon. Windows hello
    pin will help you to login to your computer if you are unable to login to your computer through finger print authentication.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to enable finger print logon.


    • Press Windows key + r and type
      gpedit.msc
      and hit Enter.

    • Select Administrative Templates under
      Computer Configuration.

    • Select Windows Components.

    • Select Biometrics.
    In Biometrics > consider that for a home system, you might enable the following:

    1) Allow the use of biometrics

    2) Allow users to log on using biometrics



    For information, refer to the below link:

    Hope it helps, reply to us with the status of your issue. We will be happy to assist you.

    Windows Hello and Eikon Finger Print reader?

    I just built a new computer and transferred my Win10 license and fingerprint reader to it. However, Win Hello says the machine is not viable for Windows Hello. I believe I had this same problem on the old machine at first, but I can't remember what I di to fix it.

    I Saw a driver load when I installed the finger print reader but now I can't find it. This all work in my old machine which was also Win 10. I love using the FP reader for my security. Suggestions on how to fix this.?
