New laptop set up made me set a PIN

HP Recommended
17-ca0010na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

New set up is running rings round me, was forced to choose a PIN would not proceed without doing so.

Have used Run netplwiz to set No log in required and ended up with 2 log in accounts and also been to Account setting to disable PIN /Hello, By doing netplwiz again got rid of second account.

Nothing gets me what I want of no PIN and no signing in.

Thanks

David

@dnpark38 Welcome to HP Community!

 

I understand that you would like to cancel the pin and password.

 

Setting up a pin on your device makes it more secured. One important difference between a password and a Hello PIN is that the PIN is tied to the specific device on which it was set up. Read more in this documentation:

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/identity-protection/hello-for-business/hello-why-p...

 

Thus, you still have option to remove it once you've done setting it up for the first time. Kindly follow the steps below:

 

  1. Open the Settings app, and click/tap on the Accounts icon.
  2. Select Sign-in options on the left side, and click/tap on the Remove button under PIN on the right side.
  3. Click/tap on Remove to confirm.
  4. Type in your Microsoft account password to verify, and click/tap on OK.

 

Additionally, you can refer answers mentioned in this thread:
