After upgrading to 20H2 I was required to set up a PIN login (at least, I don't recall seeing an option to decline doing so).
Unfortunately, this did several things:
- It wiped out the password I had been using.
- It made it impossible for me to access my desktop over my LAN via RDP (e.g., from iOS devices).
I was able to re-activate the password option by defining a new password after logging in via the PIN. Unfortunately, that does not appear to have restored my ability to access the desktop via RDP from my iOS devices.
I'd like to disable, permanently, any trace of PIN login and revert to using only passwords. Is that possible? If so, how do I do it?
I checked out the Sign-in Options settings but, interestingly, it shows "Windows Hello PIN" as "currently unavailable". The detailed error message isn't all that helpful, but it's probably due to my desktop not having a Windows Hello supporting camera.
Additional Info and Resolution
Thanx to the (quick!) responses, all of which were helpful, I was able to resolve my problem and restore the functionality I used to have. I've described what I did in detail at https://imperfect.olbert.com/fixing-microsofts-20h2-login-mess/ and encourage you to check it out.
Again, thanx to everyone for the quick replies!
