I'm testing windows 10 build 9926. Fresh install. I'm having problems with pin sign-in option.
1. I've added a pin and restarted it and could only sign-in with password.
2. I tried to remove my pin sign-in, but I couldn't find the option, do anyone know if it exist?

I've also had the same problem, and got it solved through this process: Settings->Accounts->Sign-in options->
I forgot my PIN.

After the PIN reset, the PIN option is back on Login screen.

  • This worked for me. If you simple reset/change your PIN, it doesn't fix the problem. You have to tell it you forgot your PIN. It will make you enter your password and a new PIN. Then the option will show up allowing a PIN to be entered.

    Yes, but if you want to remove the PIN, you must cancel out on the screen where you're supposed to type in the new PIN.

Apparently a know issue for build 9926, reported in the comments of this article:

List of know issues for Windows 10 technical preview


The pin sign in option is broken on the technical preview, it simply dose nothing. If you change to the consumer release version it works fine. I also had this problem but there's no way to make the pin work.
