Password-protecting the client

You can increase corporate security by requiring password protection on the client computer whenever users perform certain tasks.

You can require the users to type a password when users try to do one of the following actions:

  • Open the client's user interface.

  • Stop the client.

  • Import and export the security policy.

  • Uninstall the client.

You can modify password protection settings only for the subgroups that do not inherit from a parent group.

See About access to the client interface
