I noticed previous posts on similar issues a few months ago.


It is now August 31, 2017 and my PIN option for 'sign-on' has gone missing since last week... before the big Windows 10 update last night.


I see some April '17 discussion about it -- but no fixes; nothing to help me resolve the problem.


I like the PIN option far better than a password.

Any help is appreciated.

Have you checked your Settings, Accounts, Sign-In Options Pane in its PIN section?


Is the option to create a PIN still there or is it missing entirely.


What Version and Build of Windows 10 are you running (Hit WinKey and type "winver" [no quotes] and hit enter to find out).

UPDATE:  I retrieved the PIN option via Settings (it ddn't show yesterday, now it's there).


Thanks, man!
