Password history policies are used to prevent:
- Brute force attacks
- Users from sharing passwords
- Social engineering
- Passwords from being reused immediately
This security setting determines the number of unique new passwords that have to be associated with a user account before an old password can be reused. The value must be between 0 and 24 passwords.
This policy enables administrators to enhance security by ensuring that old passwords are not reused continually.
