Windows 10 build 14342 makes it easier for you to authenticate. The Credentials UI has been updated with support for pasting into username and password fields. This is a very useful feature especially if you’re using a rather complex username or password.

There are also users who simply cannot remember their passwords, or they have too many usernames and passwords that authenticating can sometimes become quite confusing. In these cases, a single file with all the usernames and passwords comes in handy. You simply paste the necessary information and access is granted.

Speaking of authenticating, Windows 10 support the two-factor authentication feature to prevent non-authorized users from highjacking your account.  This feature that has been long requested by business and enterprise users but also by average consumers.  In order to log in, you first type a password and then a PIN or a biometric fingerprint or you can use another security feature.

Also, if you want to unlock your Windows computer faster, you will soon be able to do it with your smartphone using the Authenticator App. All we know for the time being is that it requires a Bluetooth connection, so you need to pair the two devices. It is not exactly clear whether the smartphone needs to be near the computer or not.

The release of Microsoft Authenticator is another step closer to gaining full control over all your Windows 10 devices and improve the cross-platform experience.

If you ever encounter any authenticating issues to Windows 10, check out our fix article on this topic. If this unpleasant event occurs, you basically have to refresh your Windows 10 using a 10-step solution.  Of course, you will lose your installed apps, but at least you will keep your personal files.
