Follow these instructions to change security settings.

To change security settings:

  1. Click Admin sign-in in the upper right of the interface.
  2. Enter the Tamper Protection password (available from your Sophos Central administrator).
    There is now a Settings link in the menu bar.
  3. Go to the Settings page.
  4. Check the box marked Override Sophos Central Policy for up to 4 hours to troubleshoot.
  5. Use the slider controls on the page to turn off security features.
After four hours, the settings will automatically change back to the centrally-enforced policy settings.
Note You can change the settings back sooner if you want to. You can’t use the slider controls to do this for individual features. Instead, uncheck Override Sophos Central Policy for up to 4 hours to troubleshoot.
