Turn off picture password sign-in

This policy setting allows you to control whether a domain user can sign in using a picture password. If you enable this policy setting a domain user can’t set up or sign in with a picture password. If you disable or don’t configure this policy setting a domain user can set up and use a picture password. Note that the user’s domain password will be cached in the system vault when using this feature.
