How NSL reacts to password changes
What happens if my password expires?
Is NSL aware of password changes?


SecureLogin can handle passwords that expire or if a user opts to change the password from within the application.  This support is scripted into each particular application.  NSL will detect, and react to the password change screen to ensure the password is captured by both the NSL client, and the application.

Password Policies can be configured per application or for a group of applications as desired. SecureLogin supports the user selecting a new password, or it can randomly generate a password on the users' behalf. This can be configured per application or user group as required. If desired, organizations can implement random passwords for some applications and allow users to choose passwords for other applications.

All passwords are managed and remembered by SecureLogin so they can be extremely strong and complex.  Password changes can be implemented using the wizards or by editing the application definition.
