I know I’m not alone on this one. I travel a lot, and I always hated when my password expired while I was traveling, but I wasn’t notified. Sure, there is a notification built into Windows, but that only shows up as a pop-up on your computer when you’re logged in to the corporate network. What about road warriors who use a VPN or remote applications? It’s very frustrating when passwords expire and you’re in a remote location.
To eliminate this problem, why not help users out by giving them notifications through other means, not just a pop-up on their computer? We can do that! Our solution gives you two of the best possible options for mobile, or even in-house, users.
