Pass through to windows

Hi, i was wondering it is possible to use bitlocker pass through to windows, as i see a 'Pass through to Windows' option in the authentication policy.


If this is not possible, could you clarify what this option does do?


I cannot find any relevant documentation about this, so i doubt its possible, but i'm wondering what the option in the policy is for then.

  • This option isn't relevant to BitLocker but Sophos base encryption. You'll use the Sophos Credential Provider (Cog) to log in with but as BitLocker is integral to the OS, there's no pass-through needed/relevant.
