If you have made the move to Windows 8, then you are most likely routinely typing in a password in order to access your computer or tablet every day or every time you come back to your computer after an absence.
With the computer my husband and I share, we both have Microsoft accounts and needed/wanted to sign in with them in order to get the benefits of personalized settings, OneDrive settings and more. However, we both got tired of typing in our long, secure passwords. I started doing a little research and found out we could have 4-digit Pin numbers to log into our identities.
It’s really very simple to do and I’ve created a one minute video to show you how.
There is a way to remove the log-in feature for Windows 8 entirely, perhaps we’ll do that another time. Removing or putting a Pin on your home desktop computer is pretty safe to do, but I would advise NOT removing a login from a tablet or other portable device. If you lost it, think about what easy pickings someone has with your data.
Take a few minutes and do this on your desktop computer – it’ll save you a lot of time.
