  1. Hello Anoop

    I have a question, it makes me crazy !. how to lock screen remotely in case of lost or stolen (under Mobility + security E5).
    We are an association and we provide Physical and VMs to our members, i have made some test and cannot lock the screen the device of the user which i have created and joined it to the AD Azure.
    Is there any type to force the WIndows Hello to ask the user to change the NIP Code ? it will be an alternate solution if we cannot lock the screen.
    I would too much appreciate if you can help me.
