#2. Microsoft Authentication

If you prefer to use Windows built-in tools over third-party applications, Microsoft Authentication provides a reliable and straightforward way to unlock your locked device without a PIN. This strategy is especially beneficial if you have linked your Windows 10 account to your Microsoft account.

Here is how to use Microsoft Authentication to recover access to your Windows device.

Step 1. On the Windows 10 sign-in screen, click the "I Forgot My PIN" option.


Step 2. Enter your Microsoft account's email and password. You may also need to provide further security verification, such as obtaining a code by phone or email.

Step 3. After proving your identification, you will be allowed to reset the PIN. Enter and confirm your new PIN, then click "OK" to save it.

Step 4. Now, you can log in to your Windows 10 device.

If you do not have an active Microsoft account and can't utilize this method, it is recommended that you follow Method 1. However, if both methods do not work, you can move to the next method and reset your device.

#3. Reset This PC

If the above techniques do not work, you may still unlock your Windows 10 device. However, be cautious about this method because it involves resetting your computer. This procedure will delete all data and remove Windows PIN on your device, so ensure having a backup of anything crucial.

Here's how you can reset your PC to unlock it:

Step 1. On the Windows 10 sign-in screen, click the Power icon, hold down the "Shift" key, and choose "Restart." This will navigate you to the Advanced Startup Options menu.

Step 2. In the Advanced Startup Options menu, choose "Troubleshoot," then "Reset this PC."

Step 3. Now select "Remove Everything." This option deletes all of your data, programs, and settings.


Step 4. Follow the on-screen steps to confirm the reset. Your computer will restart and start the reset procedure.

Remember that this procedure should only be used as a last option while maintaining a backup of your crucial files to avoid losing them.
