Let’s check how you can prevent users from changing lock screen logon image using Intune MEM. The policy setting allows MEM admin to prevent users from changing the background image shown when the machine is locked or on the logon screen.
You can prevent users from changing Lock Screen Logon Image using Intune policies. By default, users can change the background image shown when the machine is locked or display the logon screen to Windows Spotlight, picture, or a slideshow.
If you enable this setting, the user will not be able to change their lock screen and logon image, and they will instead see the default image.
