This setting specifies the number of past PINs that can be associated to a user account that can't be reused. This policy enables administrators to enhance security by ensuring that old PINs are not reused continually. PIN history is not preserved through PIN reset.

The value must be between 0 to 50 PINs. If this policy is set to 0, then storage of previous PINs is not required.

Default: 0.

Supported on: At least Windows 10 Server or Windows 10
