Hello Anup,

I already have two factor authentication set up on my Microsoft account, I want to know how to get windows 10 to request for approval when signing in to my computer.

Thank you,

I think its headed for a different security - maybe we'll see something in the new build.

Just had it do something I hadn't seen it ever do before to change the insider settings on a second admin account, it not only asked me to verify my login/password.. but then it asks for PIN too, just to be sure... some little cute message when acking for the additional pin.

 unless you password the machine in bios or add a hard drive password, some of us can get into your computer and see everything you have if we can sit down in front of it.
