How to protect your Windows 10 PC from password guessing – Grow Infotech

by Growinfotech

For this you need:

1️⃣ Open “Local Group Policy Editor” (Win + R; gpedit.msc),
2️⃣ Go to “Computer Configuration” -> “Windows Settings” -> “Security Settings” -> “Account Policies” -> “Account Lockout Policy”.

This section will contain three parameters (set the desired values for them): account lockout duration — the time in minutes for which the account will be blocked after exceeding the limit of attempts; account lockout threshold — the limit of password attempts; reset account lockout counter after — the time in minutes before the number of unsuccessful password entry attempts is reset.
