Windows 11 offers the user various mechanisms to access the system and the most common of all is the use of strong passwords for login. Let's remember not to use essential data to assign the password such as phone numbers, birthdays, etc. The password is the first security method when using Windows 11..
In a world where the use of passwords is required for most online activities, it is possible that for some reason we forget the password to access the system and this represents a serious failure since if we do not remember the password we simply will not have access to Windows eleven.
