    This is also an issue at our trust. Apple by default allow up to 15 minutes, can we have this as an option please.

    100% agreed. We are getting countless complaints.

    5 minute maximum might make sense for a phone, but not for a laptop. The MacOS Maximum Screen Lock setting should be at least configurable up to 15-30 minutes.

    The goal is to prevent people from putting in 9 hours as their setting; ie: enforcing a reasonable screen lock threshold.

    This is a huge issue for our organization. We have 90% MacOS and the password policy having a 5 minute max for auto lock is extremely inconvenient for several of our users. We would like to see a 15 or 20 minute option. This is in regard to the MacOS Password Policy that can be set in Sophos Central Mobile Management.
