And if you start using the same PIN on each device, then an attacker only has to crack a stupid 4-digit value.

Doesn't seem like much of a win to me.




But if you use it just for your laptop -- or vice versa (not your desktop also) then it might be helpful. I don't know.
It's probably good for your grandma you can set her password to be extremely strong (64 characters) and then only require her to input a 4 digit PIN. Then whenever she gets entirely locked out, you reset her account password. Big Grin | :-D
