Set how often user has to enter password to use quick unlock

This setting controls how often the lock screen will request the password to be entered in order to continue using quick unlock. Each time the lock screen is entered, if the last password entry was more than this setting, the quick unlock will not be available on entering the lock screen. Should the user stay on the lock screen past this period of time, a password will be requested next time the user enters the wrong code, or re-enters the lock screen, whichever comes first.

If this setting is configured, users using quick unlock will be requested to enter their passwords on the lock screen depending on this setting.

If this setting is not configured, users using quick unlock will be requested to enter their password on the lock screen every day.

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family
