Hello everyone, we have a need to remotely reset passwords on Windows devices. Since it’s common for users to forget their password credentials, we require a solution that allows password resets without causing any disruptions to our users. Is there a solution available for this requirement?

  • You can achieve this using scripts. Use the PowerShell script given below to remotely reset the password on Windows devices.

    For more information, you can refer to our help documentation for the script to reset password on Windows.
    Just remember to replace ‘username’ with the actual username of the target account. Also, please note that after running the script, the device will need to be restarted for the action to take effect.

    However, it’s important to consider the potential security risks of having a blank password, as anyone with physical access to the device will be able to log in without authentication. It’s advisable to follow proper security protocols and prompt users to set a new password immediately after the remote password reset.

    If you require any further assistance or have additional questions, feel free to ask. We’re here to help!
