  1. Windows Hello PIN - I forgot my PIN: Just keeps looping doesn't let me change.


    Hello,

    I am having a problem where I forgot my Windows Hello PIN and when I go into the Sign-in options -> Windows Hello PIN -> I forgot my PIN. All it does is show a loading sign and then goes right back to click the button again. This is showed in the following screen shots. This is a work machine and some settings are managed by my organization but I have been told this option is supposed to work. Is there anyway to get this option to work? Multiple employees have forgotten their PIN and the only fixed we've found so far is re-imaging the computer and having them set a new one.

    Login with PIN and Hello

    Hi Jean,

    Windows 10 includes multiple options to sign-in to your account, including the ability to sign-in using a PIN and Windows Hello, which uses facial recognition. For us to provide a solution suited to your concern, we need additional information. Can
    you answer the questions below?

    • How are you setting the PIN and Hello?
    • Which build version of Windows is your PC running on?
    • Were there any error codes or messages?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you follow the steps below on how to set up PIN.

    • Open Settings.
    • Select Accounts.
    • Click Sign-in options.
    • Click the Add button for the PIN and set your PIN.
    • Do the same for the Windows Hello.

    Looking forward to your response.
