Microsoft brings several features and capabilities to Windows 10 and makes PC authentication easier than ever. You can use a password, PIN and password to connect to your computer. From the Windows login screen, you can easily switch between these login and logon options.

In addition to the traditional password-based login, Windows 10 also includes a PIN code and a photo password for user security.
