Password Lockout Duration options?


New Member
Hey gang-

My employer just started issuing us Surface 2 tablets. Under PC Settings->Accounts->Sign-in Options, they have administrator locked any Password Policy longer than 15 minutes. This is maddeningly frustrating since we use the devices in high-vibration environments and it's quite exasperating (and at times impossible) to accurately type the required complex password every 15 minutes if one doesn't keep the screen active at all times.

I'm curious what additional durations are normally available to Surface 2 owners running Windows RT 8.1? Could somebody here let me know.

Perhaps I could suggest one of those to our IT department.
