Re: I've said it before
"Finally the agency excoriates Windows 10 for its poor security. People can use a four-digit pin to log in and purchase apps"
But you can CHOOSE to do exactly the same on Android or IOS. This isn't a Windows security failing, it's a user choice.
"and the CNIL notes that there's no limit to the number of times a PIN can be tried"
Also the same as Android / IOS.
There are also security advantages to using a PIN - if you’re using a Microsoft account to log in to your device, you’re entering a password that can be used to gain access to every single aspect of your account, including other devices and web services.However, by setting up a PIN lock, you can unlock a single device without routinely using your account password.
