  1. Windows hello password fingerprint 2FA and PIN????


    Windows forces me to use a PIN but I don't want to remember a password and a PIN i already have 2FA but I do like a fingerprint but that requires a PIN also? It's just to much to remember all those PIN's that are required for apps banking insurance windows why would a password and a PIN be easier than a password alone. Should I use the same PIN for all my apps and accounts on all devices?

    :)

    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?

    Windows Hello - PIN and Fingerprint not working anymore

    First, this is similar with
    this question
    , but that thread is locked with no solution.

    After some months of fingerprint login working fine, after some update few months ago fingerprint stopped working, error message like "windows hello encountered a problem and stopped working".

    - noticed that PIN is not set up anymore

    - tried to set up PIN or fingerprint - not working (fingerprint sensor was not even recognized by Hello, even though Dell tools verification was ok).

    - reinstalled fingerprint sensor driver, managed to determine Hello to find sensor and allowed to set up fingerprint until near the end when it requested for a PIN to be setup. asked for my password but the next screen (to enter PIN twice) never appears

    - deleted Ngc folder, recreated, managed to set up PIN individually

    - when I try to set up fingerprint click on Get Started, asks for PIN, and after I enter the PIN the popup disappear but does't go to the next step with sensor, stays there with only the Cancel button visible.

    To answer obvious questions:

    - windows updates done. no change

    - new account created and tried to set up. same issues with fingerprint setup, at the end not setting up PIN or I set up PIN separately on fingerprint start does not go further than entering PIN after Get Started.
