  1. Windows Hello pin


    I am not set up for, nor do not want to have password login for my system.

    Right after installing 20h2 yesterday, Windows started nagging me to set up "Windows Hello", in order to "make sure my system is working properly" or something to that effect.

    I wonder if this has any connection with the fact that I occasionally get a popup alert that my Microsoft account needs attention, at which point I am taken to the setting, and asked to sign in to my account. I do so, use Microsoft Authenticator to confirm.

    The reason I mention this point is that the "Windows Hello" settings are right below the Microsoft Account settings.

    What exactly happens if I set up a pin? Will I now have to enter a pin to login to Windows? If I get that message about my Microsoft account, will I now have to enter a pin?

    :)

    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,

    Noor Azam S
