Enable or Disable Display Last Sign-in Information during User Sign-in in Windows 10

information   Information
You can control whether or not the system displays information about previous sign-ins and sign-in failures to the user.

For local accounts and domain user accounts (in domains of at least a Windows Server 2008 functional level), if you enable this setting, a message appears after the user signs in that displays the date and time of the last successful sign-in by that user, the date and time of the last unsuccessful sign-in attempted with that user name, and the number of unsuccessful sign-ins since the last successful sign-in by that user. The user will need to click/tap on OK in this message before the user is presented with their desktop.

The system will not display last sign-in information for Microsoft accounts on the PC.

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable to display information about previous logons during logon of local and domain users in Windows 10.

You must be signed in as an administrator to enable or disable to display last sign-in information during sign-in.
