  1. Windows login change from pin to password problem


    I am running Win 10 Pro 2004 version.


    When I try to change my login option from PIN to password, you only give me the single option as to login using my microsoft password only.


    DO YOU GUYS DO THIS TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR CİA VS. TO LOGIN TO OUR ACCOUNTS SPENDING LESS TIME TO FIND OUR PASSWORDS?


    I PROTEST this manner!


    Remember that you are the ones who advise us to use unique passwords for every type of logins.


    What CHANGED to forget this?

    :)
