  1. Bitlocker passwords


    Hi,

    Is it possible to force users to change their Bitlocker passwords? We have some users using the same passwords but cannot find a way of forcing a change without physically doing it on each device. If we change complexity in GPO will this prompt users to change password?

    :)

    bitlocker password?

    I have the Recovery Key but that is not the problem. I have no bitlocker password - not lost or forgotten; it was never created. Sounds like you're suggesting I turn off bitlocker and just turn on again.
