About the virtual keyboard

A virtual keyboard displayed on the logon screen prevents password characters from being typed on the physical keyboard. The virtual keyboard appears on the logon screen when a user clicks in the password field. A user then types the password by clicking the characters on the virtual keyboard, instead of typing them on the physical keyboard.
A virtual keyboard action applies to all logon page actions that follow it in the access policy.
