    Need to add a 2 Password Log in


    I have seen it on Windows 10 Enterprise edition, a user that requires 2 passwords to get access to Windows. How would I enable such a feature?

    Strictly speaking, that would then potentially be needed for Safe Mode, not to mention booting to a command prompt.

    Password protection at login is, anyway, a very limited form of protection. For example, anyone with a bootable disk, provided there's nothing stopping them using that, can boot your PC and access anything that's not encrypted.

    So I'm wondering what extra security that would really give? I.e. is it really worth pursuing?

    There is Windows Hello - fingerprint and facial recognition where you have appropriate hardware.

    I've not looked at the following in any detail... just a search for

    There is this:

    There may be some 3rd party tools e.g.
