    Delete PINs for all accounts on Windows 10 workstation

    We're rolling out Windows 10 Enterprise to the first batch of new computers. We tested PIN and fingerprint login on the reference computer. Before we capture an image of the reference computer, I want to delete the PIN and fingerprint signature for any and all user accounts that have logged in, including domain accounts. I found that fingerprint login signatures can be deleted from c:\windows\system32\WinBioDatabase.

    Can you tell me the folder or reg key where PINs are stored? Or, the proper method to clear out all local PINs?

    Hi Clp, welcome to the Ten Forums.

    You need to remove the PIN one by one for each user account having it enabled in your deployment image. It is not possible to remove the PIN option in the Settings > Accounts > Sign in options, even when you remove the PIN before capturing the image, the end users will have the option to use PIN.

    This short tutorial shows how to remove the PIN in Windows 10: PIN - Remove from your Account in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
