    Hello Gurus,
    Good Afternoon. Our current policy rule allows users 5 incorrect password attempts. However password suppression is not active.
    Going forward, we want to allow users to view the characters enter after 2 incorrect attempts. As per my understanding, we need to do the following:

    1. Suppress Password Echo IT policy rule - Set to 'Yes'.
    2. Set FIPS Level IT policy rule to 1.

    By making the above setting active, after a given number of incorrect password attempts, the characters that a user types in the Password dialog box will appear on the screen.
    Is this correct? If we want to keep the maximum incorrect attempts to 5 and allow the user to see the charater on thier screen after 2 failed attempts, what other changes we are required to perform?
    Awaiting quick revert.

    Thank You.

    Regards,
    Ashish

    From the policy reference guide, this is what you need to do :


    Suppress Password Echo IT policy rule
    Description This rule specifies whether the characters that a BlackBerry device user types in the Password dialog
    box appear on the BlackBerry device screen after the user types the password incorrectly a specific
    number of times.
    Policy Reference Guide Password policy group
    180
    Related rules The Password Required IT policy rule affects this rule. The device uses this rule only if a password is
    configured on the device. To require a password, configure the Password Required IT policy rule to
    Yes.
    The Set Maximum Password Attempts IT policy rule affects this rule. To specify the number of times
    that the user can type the password incorrectly before the characters appear on the screen, configure
    the Set Maximum Password Attempts IT policy rule.
    Possible values • Yes
    • No
    Default value • No
    Exceptions • BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Novell GroupWise only with devices running BlackBerry Device
    Software 4.0 or later
