    Windows hello not working


    I keep getting notifications that my windows security isn't complete, so I open windows security. It says to set up account protection. When I try to set it up, it goes to set up a pin. I enter my microsoft password, and sign in then enter my pin for my microsoft account, and nothing happens, it just closes the window. When I go to settings -> account -> sign in options -> pin, and do the same, and it says I can only do it is I have a school or workplace account. I have to enter a pin when I turn on my PC.

    Is there something I can do?

    I at least want to make the notifications and the windows security red x to go away, and to be secure.

    Thanks in advance.

    :)

  2. My hello sign in stopped working.

    Hi,

    This problem that started after installing the last Windows update might be caused by outdated or corrupted device drivers. For us to better assist you, we'll be needing additional information:

    • Are you pertaining on Windows Hello sign-in? If yes, does it mean that the facial recognition is not working?
    • Is there an error message displayed when using Windows Hello?

    Meanwhile, it is better to check the status of Windows Hello sign-in option in your computer. To check the Windows Hello status, follow these steps:

    • Click the Start button and select the Settings
      icon.
    • Choose Accounts from the list.
    • Select Sign-in options in the left pane of the window.
    • Under Windows Hello, kindly check the status of it.

    As an initial troubleshooting step, we suggest keeping the device drivers like camera driver up-to-date. For your reference, check this article on how to

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.
