Re: EPO End User Guide

The Self-recovery option allows the user to reset a forgotten password by answering a set of security questions. A list of security questions is set by the administrator using McAfee ePO. If the answers from the user match what has been stored with their self-recovery information, they can proceed through the recovery process.

Re: EPO End User Guide

@User75102151 The question wasn't exact so mislead to different topic, apologize for the inconvenience caused.

You can leave the message at "Logon message" in Product Settings | Assigned policy | Log on | Log on message|

This message appears to the end user in the Preboot logon page. You can leave up to 3000 characters here.

You can also refer to the following docs page as well:

https://docs.mcafee.com/bundle/drive-encryption-7.2.5-interface-reference-guide/page/GUID-255D85B7-3...

 

Hope, this addresses your query.

Re: EPO End User Guide

As such there is no option for security questions in ePO login.

The link which i have sent you is for the Drive Encryption thing.

You can login to the ePO using the same credentials which you have used for installing.

You can create multiple user and assign multiple permission sets from the ePO.
