  • A new setting in the latest fast-ring build allows users to use face recognition, fingerprint detection, or a physical security key instead of a password. -
  • The setting is found under Accounts -> Sign-in in the Windows settings. -

Just to clarify for anyone who is confused. This makes it so that you only need to use the fingerprint or face unlock. Previously, you still needed to have a password as a fallback.

I wonder how this will work out for legacy apps that might ask users for their Windows password to perform operations.
