Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Will Feature “Forgot My Password” Option On Log In Screen

Windows 10 is now a service rather than a product and till now that seems to have been working just fine for Microsoft. We have found some images that show that the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will have a ‘forgot my password’ option on the sign in screen. This could come in handy but then again I have never forgotten the password of my laptop or PC.

With the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, you will be able to reset your password using a secondary email ID. This will come in handy if you have multiple PCs, and there can be times where you have children and they forget what the password was. Instead of being locked out of your device, you can now reset your password using the second email.

This feature is available to the Microsoft Insiders that are using the test builds and will come out for the general public with the release of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Microsoft said that the new update will incorporate new security features and this could be one of the ways Microsoft plans to increase security.

“Windows Defender Device Guard is available to Windows 10 E3 and E5 customers. For both E3 and E5 customers the Fall Creators Update will simplify application control, on any Windows 10 device, by relaxing hardware requirements and streamlining the management of the safe application lists to ease customer adoption through automation.”

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will be coming out in Fall 2017 and it will have some interesting new features to offer.
