Windows 10 comes with new security features and represents the most secure Windows ever. You can supply login information through a password, pin, or even Windows Hello’s new biometrics options. It helps to keep away the unwanted persons from gaining access to your personal information. If you are from those who love the way Windows used to require the Ctrl + Alt + Del to log in, you can re-enable that in Windows 10 to add an extra level of login security.
