PIN credential

A PIN is a credential composed of user-selected characters. A PIN is often used in combination with another credential to easily enhance its security. This PIN should not be confused with a Smart Card PIN which is used as part of a Smart Card credential.

A PIN may be used as a credential for authentication, when combined with an additional supported credential as defined by the Logon or Session Policy in force.

On the Credential Manager, PIN page, you can create a new PIN or change your existing PIN. The minimum and maximum number of characters allowed is specified on the left side of the page. Once a PIN has been added, the PIN tile label changes from ADD to CHANGE.
