Manage logon hours

You can control and limit the timeline when a user can log on to the Drive Encryption client system.

This option does not force the users to log out from the current session, although the current time is scheduled to be part of the logon restriction. However, once the user logs out from the system, the user will not be able to log on to the client system until the next allowed logon hour.

Note: Logon hours policy is applied only when the user is not logged on.
