After upgrading to the latest version of Windows 10 that Microsoft offered last week, one of my upgraded PCs (the Lenovo 900) stopped offering additional options for logging in. The only login option was to enter a password, even though the Settings option looked to be configured correctly. This doesn’t happen to everyone, just certain PC manufacturers and models.
If this is your case, to fix this you actually need to go through the process of removing your current Pin configuration and setting it back up again.
Here’s how to do it…
- Open Settings and go to Accounts.
- Locate the Pin option under Sign-in Options and tap or click Remove.
- Verify that you really want to remove it.
- Verify your Microsoft Account password to continue.
- Once the removal process is complete, you can set it up again right away. Without leaving the Sign-in Options page, tap or click Add.
- Verify your Microsoft Account password again.
- Now create your Pin (it can be the same as it was before).
Once you reboot the computer, you’ll now be offered Pin as an optional login option.
