Alternates for Password login
Windows 10 offers Log-In ways other than passwords. These are discussed below. The user may choose any of them which is suitable for him/her.
Go to settings, then click on “accounts” and there you’ll see option for “sign-in options”. Click on it then PIN option will be available. Click on it to add a PIN for your log-in account
When you click on “add”, it will ask you to enter your current password then promote you to enter your new PIN, which can be at least 4 digits and exceed up to 6 or 8 digits.
Now you don’t need to remove the older password, it’ll remove auto. After setting Pin, you will ask auto for PIN not for the password. After completing your PIN, you don’t need to press the enter key. It’ll log-in auto as you enter the last digit of your PIN.
This is an alternate way to Log-In rather than Log-In through password.
Another way to Log-in is you can use picture password. It is again at same location go to “settings”, then “accounts” and then “sign-in options”. There you’ll see picture password option. Click on it.
Firstly it’ll ask you to verify the password of your current account. Then promote to window to ask to browse the picture
Then ask your permission about your selected permission to use it.
Then it will ask you for 3 any gesture anywhere in your picture for security.
After putting gesture, it will be done and ask you to finish this setup
So this is how you can set the picture password for Log-In into your system
