Do not wish to use Windows Hello on Edge or Chrome

UEM Testing 21 Reputation points

Hi all,

On my Windows 10 device, I currently use Edge and Chrome to auto-login to whitelisted URLs (set in the registry) with the logged in user's email address and password.
I find however that when I set up a Windows Hello PIN, the auto-login does not work and prompts to enter either the PIN or an account email address and password?

Any ideas/tips on how I could go around this? Definitely keen to use the Windows Hello PIN to unlock the windows 10 laptop, but maybe skip it in Edge and Chrome so that the auto-login works and I do not get prompted to enter a set of credentials?

Thank you

    Auto or automatic login might not work if Windows Hello PIN and Windows Hello Fingerprint or any one of these are enabled. Navigate to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options page and then remove these two sign-in options.

    According to your description, the issue might be caused by failure of NTLM authentication. You can refer to Windows Hello CredUI for NTLM Authentication in Microsoft Edge identity support and configuration to check whether it fits your issue. If it fits, please follow steps in Enable Kerberos/NTLM Authentication in Web Browsers to troubleshoot.

    I will try on my PC as well. Please let me know if there is any progress.
