How to remove Windows Hello

I want to remove windows hello from my computer.

And the common response of:
Start > Settings > Accounts > Sign in options > Remove.

DOES NOT WORK, STOP TELLING ME TO DO THAT!!!

I don't have a remove button, and I even selected NEVER in the list but it still asks me everytime I log into my computer.

Here is the online screenshot from how to fix this, as you can see I do not have the REMOVE option:

My name is Andre Da Costa; an Independent Consultant, Windows Insider MVP and Windows & Devices for IT MVP. I'm here to help you with your problem.

Not because its listed in the Sign in options mean its an available option on your computer.

Your screenshot indicates you do not have Windows Hello at all.

Windows Hello is only available on select devices.

What is the exact make and model?

Open Start, type: system information
Hit Enter
Click System summary
Look in the right pane

Copy the system sku info into reply here.

Did you try to disable it via registry?

Please take a backup of the registry always that you are going to edit it > https://support.microsoft.com/en-in/help/322756...

Open the Run dialog box by pressing the Windows key + R key

Type Regedit and hit the Enter key.

When the Registry Editor opens, navigate to the following location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PolicyManager\default\Settings\AllowSignInOptions.

In the right pane, double click on the DWORD entry named value set it to 0.

The above method will disable Windows Hello for all user accounts. If you want to re-enable

it, change the DWORD entry Value back to 1.

I hope this information has been useful, please let me know if you still need assistance.

Hello Andre,

I am unsure how you can say "Your screenshot indicates you do not have Windows Hello at all."

Perhaps it is because I stopped as soon as I realized what it had done? I am now forced to log into my computer with my Email password, and it is asking me to setup a PIN which I refused to do.

Here is the SKU:
