Microsoft includes the ability to log in with a PIN in Windows 8, and the feature still exists in Windows 10. Here’s how to set it up for faster sign in.
Windows 10 allows you to log in to your user account with a PIN instead of a Password. It’s a handy feature which some claim is more secure than a password being that many people prefer to simple non-secure passwords. Setting up a pin is simple if you know where to look so just follow the steps and in 2 minutes, you will be good-to-go.
Log Into Windows 10 with a PIN
Step 1. Go to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options. Scroll down on the right side and click the Add button under the PIN section.
Step 3. Type in your PIN twice and click OK. That’s it. Now you just need to type in your PIN to sign in to your Windows 10 device.
If you ever want to change it, head back to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options and select the Change button.
