    I just got my new Pixelbook and I like it. But isn't there an automatic screen lock?
    Now when I go to the manual screen lock, to open it back up I have to type in my Google password. Isn't there a way I can use a PIN? The Google Help is not helping. Can anyone help getting this straightened out?

    Thanks

    I think you might need v 68 or better for PIN support.

    Yes. Click on your photo, settings. Under People there is a password option. You can then select password or PIN, and if you want to lock screen when it sleeps.

    I got mine yesterday and that is what I had to do.
