    You use a pin to login and you want it to stop asking or it started asking and you don't have a pin? I'm confused??

    I use pin to login to the surface which i want.

    But windows security started poping up asking me for the pin when I try and view the password in stored in Firefox which I DO NOT WANT

    The surface is slow enough with windows doing something I dont want it doing slow things down more cause prompt is not exactly fast

    Chrome does that to me on my phone not sure if you can stop it. I'll look around.

    I had to go into Netplwiz to disable login which disable the pin upon start up but firefox is still asking for the pin to view its stored passwords

    Have no such issue on my desktop though

    Maybe we are talking about some kind of cyber attack, that your computer asks for a password. I think it's for a reason.

    I never save or allow my passwords to be remembered anywhere on the Internet. This is absolutely not safe. This is how you provide your information to others.

    I forgot to say that I use a lot of social networks and services with a username. However, I have different passwords on each one ( no, I don't write them down, I just keep them in my head ) since it is safe. Heck, I really care a lot about my online security as it's very important to people today. The Internet stores too much personal, too much material that can fall into the hands of scammers. Now I use it https://jealouscomputers.com/cyber-security-how-to-protect-yourself/which helps me to be protected from all sorts of hackers and scammers.
    Do you protect your computers and accounts from unauthorized people? if so, in what way ?
