    Stop Win 10 from asking me to create a pin every time I reboot


    The 1803 build forced me to create a pin during a clean install then I deleted it after the install completed.

    Now it asks me to create a pin every time I boot. How do I stop this from happening on a Win 10 Home X64 system.

    No help. As far as I can find via searches, there is no fix for this problem yet. It is incredibly annoying. both at installation time when it forces you to create a pin and now every time I boot it tries to make me create a pin via/for Windows Hello. I don't want a pin. I want to stay with my password as the only method of signing in.

    I'll have to check the latest insider build 17692 and see if the problem still exists there.

    A viable alternative for me would be to disable Windows Hello. Can that be done? Again, from all the searches I've done that doesn't seem possible either.

    This is on a laptop so I don't want it to auto-logon.
    As my initial post says:

    When I boot up from a power off state or on a restart, this is what I see:

    If I then click on the Microsoft Account Password box on the right then enter my password I login okay with no pin prompt.

    Yes, I can confirm that.
    Just like Ztrucker said.....
    (A) If clicking at the Microsoft Account box on the right first > sign in with the password > it will go to desktop without prompting for Pin create.
    (B) If entering the password into the password box right away without clicking at the Microsoft Account box first, then create Pin prompt will appear.
    That registry editing tutorial ( A Workaround to Disable PIN Login in Windows 10 / 8 | Password Recovery ) is not necessary. I can keep the "value" at 1 and still be able to avoid prompting to create PIN if I use method (A)

    Just one extra step on sign in. I can live with that.

    Thing is, I do not have this issue on the rest of my 4 computers.

    Looks like it's cleared up on my laptop now too. How strange. The only updates that have been installed are for Office 2007.
