In addition, if the system is pre-installed by the system upgrade to the Professional Edition or other Windows10 version of the theory is not affected.
2. This feature requires the computer can find miband Bluetooth signal, you must first turn on the miband Bluetooth radio function;
3. Because the mi band connection is one-to-one, so if you want to connect the laptop computer, cell phone connection must be disconnected;
4. Must be set to Microsoft account PIN code login; since this function is actually input in place of the PIN, so sleep, hibernation or other non-working state, the need to wake up the computer to enter the PIN code interface in order to unlock. Restart, shutdown and then enter the system login interface can not be directly unlocked, you need to use the password to enter the system and then lock the computer or sleep then it can continue to use.
5.
