    Pin number


    Hi folks,

    Please, can anyone tell me if it is possible to do away with the need to enter a pin number each time I go to my pc. Many thanks.

    Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options > PIN , Create a PIN to use in place of passwords. Mine is a 4 digit number?

    I'm afraid there is. When I did the clean install I was given the option to use a password or a pin number and so for ease I chose the pin number option. I would have been happier if I was also given the option to have neither but that didn't happen.

    Thanks for the replies folks.

    No, there is no such thing as a PIN number anywhere, nothing to do with Windows.

    What nigelmercier is trying to say is that PIN number is redundant. Personal Identification Number number.
