Help disabling PIN on Azure AD joined PC

I have a client who is logging into his new PC using his Office 365 credentials. As part of being  joined to Azure AD is seems to default setting is to request that a PIN is set up.

How can I disable this feature for this user or across the organisation (only 4 accounts).

We do not have access to Intune or other MDMs.

If it is using a Microsoft Account, the PIN being used is likely the Windows 10 PIN. Go Start, Settings, User Accounts, Sign-In options and remove the PIN there.

This is not advisable, but that is how you do it.

They are not using a MS account. They are using the organisation account.

http://www.isumsoft.com/windows-10/disable-pin-picture-password-logon-in-windows-10.html tells you how to use the local policy editor to disallow PIN sign in.

The document McKnife helped me find the correct location in my version of Windows 10

Navigate to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows components > Microsoft Passport for work

and set Use Microsoft Passport for Work = disabled
