Implementing Password Secure Mode with Group Policy

Problem: How to implement Password Secure Mode with Group Policy.

Cause: N/A

  • Knowledge of Microsoft Group Policy
  • LanSchool's .adm/.admx templates
  • Access to the Customer Portal


In order to pass the password successfully you must encrypt the password into a hash from your Customer Portal.  Log into the Customer Portal and at the bottom of the page select Customer.

You will then see a tile that says Encrypt AD Pass. 
Select the tile and type in your password you want for Password Secure mode. This will encrypt the password for you and you can apply it to your Group Policy.
