Accounts “Sign-in Options” in Settings is Completely Blank

When you open Settings → Accounts → Sign-in Options, the Sign-in Options page may be completely empty. As a result, you cannot modify the PIN, dynamic lock, or other sign-in settings.
options empty


Sign-in options may be blank due to an incorrect services configuration. To resolve the issue, follow these steps:

  1. Launch services.msc. This opens the Services console.
  2. Double-click “User Manager” (UserManager) and set it to “Automatic”
  3. Double-click “Web account manager” (TokenBroker) and set it to “Manual”
  4. Double-click “Credential Manager” (VaultSvc) and set it to “Manual”
  5. Double-click “Windows Biometric Service” (WbioSrvc) and set it to “Manual”
  6. Double-click “Microsoft Account Sign-in Assistant” (wlidsvc) and set it to “Manual.”
  7. Exit the Services console.
  8. Restart Windows.

See if the above steps have fixed the Sign-in options page.
