    Using a PIN


    Would appreciate your assistance!!


    Have an older Toshiba Satellite laptop that got 'mysteriously' upgraded to Windows 10.

    Been using a password on it since 2011. However, with all the hacking going on in this world, would like to use a PIN instead.


    Since the laptop got upgraded from W7 to W10, am I heading for a problem if changing to a PIN, or, should it work without problems?


    Thank you for your help!!

    Hello CB,

    You should have no issue adding a PIN to your account since it already has a password.

    Agreed, I just did it on an HP Notebook I got back in 2010 with Win7 and Upgraded to Win8.1 then to Win10, no issue.
