How to add and let other users login to your PC using Windows Hello

windows hello

Windows Hello, the biometric authentication system, that Microsoft brought to Windows 10 is a more personal, easy and secure way to log on to your PC either with your face, finger or iris in your eye. If you have more than one person using the same PC, regardlesss of whether they are a part of your family or not, it makes sense to let them personalise the PC the way they want to.


How to add multiple accounts to the same Windows 10 PC

Open Settings on your PC.

Windows 10 settings
Type in the search box ‘’Family’’ or “Other people,’’ or go to Accounts > Family & other people.

Windows 10 settings family account
Select “Add a family member” or “Add someone else to this PC based on your needs.” Type in their Microsoft account email address.

Have them login with their new account

Sign out from your account and ask the other person to sign in back with their own account. They will be prompted to setup a new profile, including the setup of Windows Hello with their own face or fingerprint sign-in.

You are all set and ready to go.

Please note, Windows Hello requires special hardware in order to work on your PC. Some devices like the Surface Pro 4, Surface Book, and most PCs that can recognize your face and fingerprint are already compatible with Windows Hello.
