  • Hi,

    “The Device That Is Required By This Cryptographic Provider Is Not Ready For Use” is a flaw that has recently been noticed in Windows Hello feature. Many people reported issues when signing in with PIN, trying to change PIN or Setup PIN for the first time. Please follow the steps in the link below to repair.

    If the issue still insists, check the steps below:

    If the TPM has been cleared in the BIOS, the close the TPM management console then re-open it. The error should not occur when opening the second time.

    If the TPM is disabled through the BIOS then you either:

    •Re-enable TPM ins the BIOS and follow the TPM cleared steps.

    •Open Windows PowerShell  as an administrator and run the following commands:

    $tpm = gwmi -n root\cimv2\security\microsofttpm win32_tpm

    $tpm.SetPhysicalPresenceRequest(6)

    Hope it will be helpful to you
