Ideally, the policies surrounding the PIN can be set by an organization managed through a server. If your system is connected to an organization’s network, only the IT administrator can make the desired changed to the policy.

However, this issue is being faced by home users using the Windows 10 home version without any connection to any organization’s network. This is the case with most of the users reporting the issue. The reason is that Microsoft counts school networks as organization. To resolve the error “This device doesn’t meet your organization’s requirements for Windows Hello,” please try the following solutions sequentially:

  1. Remove School account from the Windows Mail app
  2. Delete school accounts from the system’s Account settings

1] Remove School account from the Windows Mail app

Even if a user adds his school’s email ID to the Windows Mail app and reboots the system, the system will fall under the policies of the school’s server. In this case, simply disconnecting your school account as follows will help.

Open the Windows Mail app.

Right-click on your school account and select Account settings.

Open accounts settings

Click on Remove this account from the device.

Remove account from Mail application

2] Delete school accounts from the system’s Account settings

In case you have added your school account through the Account settings page, you would have to remove it from the same menu.

Click on the Start button and go to Settings >> Accounts >> Access work or school.

Click on your school account once and then select Manage.

Select Remove this account from the device.

Now, go to the tab Email & accounts. Make sure your Administrator account is added and the PIN is of your choice.

Then restart the system. You will not face the issue in the discussion.

Hope it helps!
