    How to Remove PIN from your Account in Windows 10

    information   Information
    You can create a PIN (Personal Identification Number) to use in place of passwords. Having a PIN makes it easier to sign in to Windows, apps, and services.

    When you sign-in to Windows 10 with a PIN number, you only need to type your PIN number without pressing Enter.

    Luckily for those who no longer want to use a PIN there is an easy and fast workaround to completely remove the PIN. This short tutorial will show you how to do it.




    Here's How:

    1) Open the Settings app, and click/tap on the Accounts icon.

    2) Select Sign-in options on the left side, and click/tap on the Remove button under PIN on the right side.

    Wow. Never in my dreams I could think of clicking the Cancel button to remove the PIN. I have been looking for an option to remove the PIN sign in since last 20 minutes. Thanks Kari. Great tutorial.
