Notes Native Encryption Password Timeout IT policy rule


This rule specifies the maximum length of time (in minutes) that a BlackBerry® device stores the IBM® Lotus Notes® .id password that a user types. The permitted range is -1 through 32,767.

The default value is -1, which indefinitely stores the password that the user types.

Change this rule to 0 to never store the password that a user types on a BlackBerry device. If you do this, you should also prevent the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server from storing a copy of the password by default.

For more information on changing the BlackBerry Enterprise Server default behavior, visit to read Prevent the BlackBerry Enterprise Server from storing the password for decrypting IBM Lotus Notes-encrypted messages.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.3
  • BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 4.1 SP5
