    How can i enable PIN logon

    My pc for some reason has stopped asking for my PIN when I start the computer/restart.

    How can I re activate or enable this?

    In the Group Policy I have gone to; Computer Config>Administrative Templates>System>Logon

    I have the "Turn on convenience pin sign-in" enabled and it still doesn't ask for it?

    Any ideas?

    Hello alyraver,

    Do you have a PIN button to select from the Sign-in options link on your sign-in screen?

    the thing is I can Log Out of my account - then it will ask for my pin.

    But if I turn on the pc, or restart it, it just logs in without prompting for the pin

    In that case, double check to see if you may have Windows set to automatically sign in to your account at startup using Option One in the tutorial below.

    You would want to uncheck the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer box in netplwiz to not have Windows auto sign in.
