Microsoft has added the entry Signing in using Windows Hello might not work after upgrade on the Windows Release Health status page of Windows 11. Microsoft says: On Windows 11 22H2, signing in with Windows Hello may not work as expected.

Windows Hello with facial recognition, fingerprint scanning or PIN could be affected.

It seems that this problem can only occur on devices that already have Windows Hello when they are upgraded.

Those who are affected should try a password login on Windows 11 version 22H2. Microsoft fixed this issue with preview update KB5017389 , dated September 30, 2022. The upgrade lock introduced for security is expected to be lifted in mid-October 2022.  (via)
