    Interactive logon: Machine account lockout threshold?

    Hi all,

    Just a quick question here. I have my machine BitLocker enabled and there is this Group Policy setting in Windows 10 called Interactive logon: Machine account lockout threshold. I left this setting NOT CONGIFURED.

    Since my Windows logon password is more than 10 characters long and complex, is this setting required along with using BitLocker? Plus, I am the only one using my notebook most of the time at home. And when I do decide to travel with it, I would never lose possession of it.

    So is this mandatory?

    Machine Lockout refers to the password of the Local User Accounts - not BitLocker
