Get faster logons, after an OS update or upgrade

Get faster logons, after an OS update or upgrade. Windows Update installs OS updates and upgrades, which requires system reboots. Until now, following a reboot you needed to logon manually, for the system to complete the upgrade process. However, with our new feature, Microsoft Account and Local Account Users can make the OS save user’s credentials on disk temporarily, between Windows Upudate initiated reboots, so that the user is automatically logged in and the system is locked to keep the user safe. Note that the feature is available to MSA and Local accounts that do not have work policies.
