    Stop Win 10 from asking me to create a pin every time I reboot


    The 1803 build forced me to create a pin during a clean install then I deleted it after the install completed.

    Now it asks me to create a pin every time I boot. How do I stop this from happening on a Win 10 Home X64 system.

    No help. As far as I can find via searches, there is no fix for this problem yet. It is incredibly annoying. both at installation time when it forces you to create a pin and now every time I boot it tries to make me create a pin via/for Windows Hello. I don't want a pin. I want to stay with my password as the only method of signing in.

    I'll have to check the latest insider build 17692 and see if the problem still exists there.

    A viable alternative for me would be to disable Windows Hello. Can that be done? Again, from all the searches I've done that doesn't seem possible either.

    This is on a laptop so I don't want it to auto-logon.
    As my initial post says:
    The 1803 build forced me to create a pin during a clean install then I deleted it after the install completed.

    Now it asks me to create a pin every time I boot. How do I stop this from happening on a Win 10 Home X64 system.
    When I boot up from a power off state or on a restart, this is what I see:

    If I then click on the Microsoft Account Password box on the right then enter my password I login okay with no pin prompt.
