Asus is one of the best company that manufactures laptops. Their finishing is very attractive and performance is great. We often need to create a lock for security. Forgetting laptop passwords is a common thing in our daily life, because there are so many passwords like cell phone passwords, email id passwords, bank account card passwords etc.
We don’t need to be panicked if the password is lost, because we are living in a modern life where science helps us in many ways. Before Windows 10, it was easy to reset Asus laptop password. But Microsoft added some security features in Windows 10 and now it is quite difficult to break it.
With the help of some free tools that was available on internet, someone could easily break the password of old Windows. In Windows 10 it is difficult to reset password if your PC is not connected with Microsoft account. Windows team suggest to reset the PC but personal data that are stored in hard disk partition where Windows has been setup will be deleted.
There are couples of solutions that you can try but some of them might not work for you properly and these processes take a lot of time.
