Change security settings

To change security settings:

  1. Click Admin Login and enter the tamper protection password (available from the Sophos Central administrator).
    The Settings link in the menu bar is now active.
  2. Go to the Settings page.
  3. Turn on Override Sophos Central Policy for up to 4 hours to troubleshoot.
  4. Use the controls on the page to turn security features off or on.
After four hours, the settings automatically change back to the centrally-enforced policy settings.
Note You can change the settings back sooner if you want to. You can't do this for individual features. You must turn off Override Sophos Central Policy for up to 4 hours to troubleshoot which applies to all the features.
