General Page

Use the General page to set general security policies for your organization and specific security policies for mobile usersIn Okta literature, we generally refer to "users" as the people who serve as Okta administrators. When we refer to "end users" we are generally referring to the people who the administrators serve. That is, those who use Okta chiclets to access their apps, but have no administrative control.. If you have Group Password Policy enabled, use the Password section to enforce the use of strong passwords to better protect your organization's assets.
