Changing Active Directory passwords periodically is crucial, as it prevents hackers from gaining access to network resources, even if they have stolen user credentials. Configuring password expiration to a set number of days, say 90, is a common practice among IT admins. However, users forget to change their soon-to-expire passwords and raise a password reset ticket because they:
Schedule in-depth audit reports on all password self-service activities performed by end users. You can also export reports in PDF, CSV, XLS, HTML, or CSVDE formats and send them to managers.
Control who receives password and account expiration notifications and when by creating policies based on Active Directory domain, OU, and group memberships.
Customize email and SMS expiration messages to make them more personal or imperative. You can add specific instructions and images.
Automate account expiration reminders, along with the usual password expiration alerts. Admins can also notify managers about other users' account expiration.
Configure multiple password and account expiration notifications to be sent at regular intervals so reminders don't go unnoticed.
Get the free tool up and running in seconds. Since the solution uses the existing default domain password policy, there are no changes made to Active Directory or Group Policy infrastructure and no extra steps required to get started.
ADSelfService Plus' Password Expiration Notifier automatically sends password and account expiration reminders to users via SMS and email notifications. Also, as it's highly unlikely that users will respond to a one-time password change alert, ADSelfService Plus sends multiple notifications at specified intervals. For instance, admins can choose to send a password expiration alert 10 days before the password expires, then send a second reminder eight days before expiration, a third when it's five days from expiration, a fourth at three days, and a fifth and final reminder a day before the password expires.
By helping users be proactive about soon-to-expire passwords, you can drastically reduce the number of password reset tickets.
