Also, how the f*** is a pin-code supposed to be safer than a password?

I also wondered about that and didn't like that suddenly my 64 character Windows password was going to be replaced with a 4 digit PIN. Then I learned that the PIN is only stored on your local computer. If you have a Windows account and try to use that PIN when logging onto another computer then the PIN won't work there*.

*I learned this when I finally tried out the PIN on my laptop but it didn't work on my desktop.

So, actually the PIN is a bit more safe than expected because the person who would try to hack your device would have to have physical access to it.

Don't know why they don't explain that more clearly, like "this PIN only works on this device" or something.
