How to turn off PIN sign-in RRS feed

  • Question

  • we need to disable PIN sign-in on our Windows 8 Pro clients not joined to a domain.

    This works fine for Picture Password sign-in via Local Group Policy Editor ->Computer configuration-> Administrative Templates-> System-> Logon -> Turn off picture password sign-in. When set this to enabled the user is not able to Create a picture password in PC settings.

    But does not work the same way for PIN sign-in via Local Group Policy Editor ->Computer configuration-> Administrative Templates-> System-> Logon -> Turn on PIN sign-in. When this is set to disabled the user can still Create a PIN in PC settings.

    How can we turn off PIN sign-in for machines not joined to a domain ?

  • Try run gpupdate /force command from cmd and restart your PC.

    Both policies should work fine.

  • I have the same problem as ma2thempel, is there a solution/work-around since this was raised a year ago? Running gpupdate /force doesnt do anything. I should have stayed with Windows 8.0
