GINA

This policy can be enabled to cause Windows to bypass the Screen Pass unlock dialogs and to use the dialogs from the previous GINA in the chain, that is, the GINA that was in place when Screen Pass was installed. Either the Ctrl-Alt-Del dialog or the password dialog or both can be bypassed. If the Screen Pass password dialog bypassed, the administrator override feature is unavailable. This policy may be useful in helping to integrate with fingerprint readers or other third party GINAs.

Supported on: Microsoft Windows 7 or later
