How can the user change his password after it has been expired?


The expiration date specifies the maximum period of validity for an Sophos SafeGuard Disk Encryption user profile. You can set a deadline date or time period at which the user can logon to the system for the last time. You can simply type the date or a particular period in time. After the pre-defined deadline has passed, the workstation is blocked for the user. There will be no warning message and no unblock feature for this user at all.

This setting is especially suitable if, for example, staff such as temporary staff or students on work experience that are only intended to use a workstation for a particular time period.

Please use the option "Password change after" instead, to achieve the desired behavior.
