Pre-boot login

When the encryption is active on a workstation and the product has a valid license, the pre-boot login screen will be after the workstation's boot.

The pre-boot login is a security layer of the EFDE product that secures access to the data on the workstation.


You can access the menu of the pre-boot login screen by pressing F1. It enables you to Change password, initiate the Password recovery, Shutdown the workstation or Close the pre-boot login menu.

On the pre-boot login screen, press F5 for Show password function or F8 to rotate the screen if it is not displayed properly.
