How to Set Up a Pin for Your Windows 10 User Account

This video explains how to create a pin to secure your Windows 10 user account. The four digit pin is used to log on to your Windows User Account. This video provides instructions for verifying your account and pin in Windows 10 Settings. The option may not be available on your device if your IT department has disabled the Pin option. If the option is not available, you will need to contact them to have the restrictions removed. Otherwise, simply choose the Accounts category and choose Sign‐in options. Locate the Pin sections, and choose Add. As you will in this video, a window appears asking you to verify your account. Sign in with your username and password. Type your chosen pin into the New Pin and Confirm Pin boxes that appear and close Settings.
