Computers supplied by FARO® are configured with a “FARO Preferred User” Windows® user account. While this user account is assigned administrator rights, it is not set to require a login password. It has been reported that some Windows updates will automatically set the account to require a password, effectively locking users out of their computer without notice.
- To avoid any possible issues, FARO recommends that all users manually set a password for the default user account as soon as possible.
- If you receive a password expired message, leave the “old password” field blank and provide a new password as desired.
For additional information on setting a password, refer to the “Add or remove a password for a Windows 10 local account” section in the following Dell™ support article:
> Problems with Windows 10 local account password or Microsoft Account
HP users, if you are unable to set a new password, you can call HP support directly at 1 800 334-5144.
