Our Security team has asked if the "Password hint: (Recommended)" box can be hidden on the password change window in System Preferences -> Users & Groups -> Change Password
If so, how? Haven't found any discussions here asking for this, and Google is no help. Thank you!
99% sure it doesn't hide the box or prevent users from adding a hint.. It will just keep it from showing up after failed attempts. And in the past it's been buggy as updated and upgrades in the past from Apple have broken it and then the next update from Apple fixes it..
Apple doesn't support disabling that window in your post ... The best solution is to keep the hint from showing on failed logins attempts usually that is what the Security teams want. or ... who cares what the hint is if you can't see it when you need it? : )
@eliu01 what we do is use AD + the Apple Kerberos SSO plugin, so to help prevent out of sync passwords we restrict the change password via Users & Groups and Security preferences. So that ultimately would prevent the user from changing their password and adding a password hint. you can also hide the Hint for the login window via a config profile.
