Enable Windows Hello for Domain Accounts

By | March 21, 2017

I’ve seen a lot of instructions online requiring quite a few edits to the domain policy or registry.  I have found that it only takes two policy changes to enable this feature in Windows 10.

Using gpedit.msc, navigate to:
Local Computer Policy → Computer Configuration → Administrative Templates →

Windows Components → Windows Hello for Business → Use biometrics (set enabled)
System → Logon → Turn on convenience PIN sign-in (set enabled)

I have found changing these do make the required changes in the registry as well, so no manual registry changes are required.
