Is it possible to force a delay for SG SAL so that login credentials are not handed over to the Windows GINA immediately?


Since version 4.40.1, SafeGuard Easy provides the function to implement a simulated delay into the SAL logon procedure.

Please use following registry setting to do so:


Value range:

"0" -> no simulated delay will be used if 0 is choosen.
"1" to "60" -> a delay in seconds can be simulated with the values 1 to 60.
"61" and above -> If the value contains numbers higher then sixty, a delay in milliseconds will be simulated.

Additionally, the key will be filled by the setup routine with "0", even if its already present.
