The Failed device password attempts report enables you to monitor the number of failed login attempts on your corporate devices during a specified time range. Only devices under advanced management are included in this report.
A failed login attempt is defined as 6 consecutive unsuccessful login attempts made from a device, with each subsequent unsuccessful attempt counting as an additional failed attempt.
For example, 6 consecutive failed attempts would count as 1 failed attempt, 7 consecutive failed attempts would count as 2, 8 consecutive failed attempts would count as 3, and so on.

Failed device password attempts graph
In the graph at the top of the report, you can view any spikes or trends in failed device login attempts.
You can customize the report to view data over a specific time range: Today, Yesterday, This week, Last week, This month, Last month, or Days ago (up to 180 days); or enter a Start date and End date. Click Apply after you set the date range.
By default, the graph displays data for All domains. To select a specific domain, choose from the Domain drop-down list.
Compare current and historical data
To compare the current data to historical data, in the top right, from the Statistical analysis menu, select Percentile (not available for all Security dashboard charts). You’ll see an overlay on the chart to show the 10th, 50th, and 90th percentile of historical data (180 days for most data and 30 days for Gmail data). Then, to change the analysis, at the top right of the chart, use the menu to change the overlay line.
