Password TO PIN RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to change my sign-in from password to pin. When I go to setting, options for sign-in it ask me for my Outlook pin. I haven’t set up an Outlook pin. I did try to add a pin below before trying to login to outlook buy it would not accept. So I asked to login a different   way and it asked for my password.  So I login. It asks me for my pin. I don't have one.  It says to go back to settings then account and options to log in and then I add my 4 digit pin..  It won't take it.....   And even if it does, how can I get the sign in changed from password to pin..


    This is stupidly complicated.
