Enable self-service Password reset with Azure AD Premium (Best Practice 4/10)

Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR) enables users to quickly get unblocked and continue working no matter where they are or the time of day. By allowing users to unblock themselves, your organization can reduce the non-productive time and high support costs for most common password-related issues.

Best practice: Set up self-service password reset (SSPR) for your users. Use the Azure AD self-service password reset feature.

Best practice: Monitor how or if SSPR is really being used. Monitor the users who are registering by using the Azure AD Password Reset Registration Activity report. The reporting feature that Azure AD provides helps you answer questions by using prebuilt reports. If you’re appropriately licensed, you can also create custom queries.

Best practice: Extend cloud-based password policies to your on-premises infrastructure. Detail: Enhance password policies in your organization by performing the same checks for on-premises password changes as you do for cloud-based password changes. Install Azure AD password protection for Windows Server Active Directory agents on-premises to extend banned password lists to your existing infrastructure. Users and admins who change, set, or reset passwords on-premises are required to comply with the same password policy as cloud-only users.
