    Any way to see failed sign-in attempts in Windows 10?

    I'm trying to find which account was unsuccessfully signed in or unlocked (from a signed in Windows account where the screen was just locked).
    I tried event viewer Security event 4625, but it doesn't show which user was unsuccessfully signed in/unlocked.

    Is there any way to know which user was unsuccessfully signed in?

    11, 10, 8.1 and 7 all Professional versions, and Linux Mint

    Not that I know of
    You may find this helpful - not to the extent of it IDing the user name but you can see the meaning of 6D and 380
    6D =The cause is either a bad username or authentication information
    380 Sub Code - incorrect PIN
    Logon Type 2 on your screenshot means - user has typed wrong password - but for password take it as meaning password in the widest sense.

    Three in one hour seems to me to possibly suggest something a little more than a genuine user trying to log in and getting something wrong

    What you do not tell us unless I have missed something is the type of computer setup - how many users etc - networked
    this is

    Another thought that crossed my mind have you tried noting times and date and comparing with 4624 - successful log ins
