    Windows Hello Pin


    Hi,


    My laptop running Windows 10 has been asking me to "verify your *** Email address is removed for privacy *** account" for more than a week. When I try to, after inserting my password and code sent to my phone I have a two-step verification process, it also then asks for a "pin". I figured this is Windows Hello Pin, which I never set up, so I do not have. When I try to set such pin up, it says I need an organisation account and cannot use my personal account which I use on my laptop as it is my own personal computer. I log in with a local account with password, so a pin was never in place at all. How do I stop it from preventing me from accessing mails and my documents? I cannot open remote files anymore, please help.


    Thank you

    R

    :)

    Windows Hello Pin

    Unable to setup Windows Hello, error: incorrect pin

    Hello,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    May I know the complete error code or error message that you are receiving when you try to setup Windows Hello?

    Do you have any other user account on the computer?

    If yes, does Windows Hello work on that account?

    If Windows Hello is not setup on other account, please setup it up and check if it works so that we can narrow down the issue for you.

    I suggest to remove the pin and setup a new pin on the child account and check if it works with Windows Hello.

    Please follow the steps below to remove and re-add the PIN:

    • Press Windows logo key + I to open Settings.
    • Select Accounts.
    • Click on Sign-in options.
    • Under PIN, remove the pin. There will be prompt to enter password, enter the password and removed the PIN.
    • After the pin is removed, please click on
      Add to setup pin for the account.
    • After setting up a new PIN, try to set up Windows Hello.


    Hope it helps.

    Regards,
