How to Disable just Windows Hello PIN

Bala Tuluva 0 Reputation points

In my organisation Windows Hello is disabled, but we recently integrate OKTA in our business and installed OKTA verify app on devices for authentications. Now OKTA app allows users to set Windows Hello Face/Fingerprint and Windows Hello PIN. By default Windows Hello PIN doesn't comes with complex password and we feel it's a security concern. Wondering, how can i just disable Windows Hello PIN leaving Face/Fingerprint for login? Also Hello PIN remove option is greyed out, Anyone knows how to setup this in either Regedit or local group policy?

    Hello @Bala Tuluva

    I’ve checked the Windows Hello group policy, it is located under Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Hello for Business, it seems no option there to disable pin but leave other biometric authentication available.

    Best regards
