New Versions Windows 10 Uses a PIN Number, Not Password

Well,  Microsoft has altered the security method for entry into the PC.

They are allowing users to opt for a PIN Number instead of a Username / Password combo.

 

LogMeIn does not seem to be able to deal with this.  Or, I just don't know the answer.

 

Is there a way to log into Windows 10 using PIN Numbers? 

Or should I quit looking for  this answer and force the user back into Username/Password?

Eric Anderson,  I have the same issue.  Did you figure out how to connect with username/pin rather than username/password in windows 10?  

 

Thank you

Hi there,

Microsoft PIN entry is not yet compatible with LogMeIn Central, though we are considering this additional security option for future development. 

 

Thanks!

Re: New Versions Windows 10 Uses a PIN Number, Not Password

I have about 240 PCs I take care of in various states of Windows 10 and some still 7.
The PIN issue only got me once or twice.  Since March of 2020, I have used Username/Password to log into every pc.  I never get asked for a PIN.

Now, sitting in front of the PC, I get asked for a PIN.
From LogmeinClient, never happens.

Can you see if one of the methods here work for removing the special code requirement?
