Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-09

Lync Phone Edition devices can be locked for security purposes. If you choose to enforce the phone lock, you can specify whether the phone lock is enforced globally or only within the site for which it is configured. When you configure the phone lock, you specify the following settings:

  • Minimum PIN length   The minimum length for the personal identification number (PIN) that is used to unlock the phone. The range for the PIN length is four to 15 digits. The default length is six digits.

  • Phone lock time-out   The minimum length of time before the phone locks itself. The range for the time-out is 0 to 60 minutes; the default value is 10 minutes. Enter the value in the format HH:MM:SS.
