The New Password and confirm password boxes missing at locked screen after password expires

When the GPO policy setting Interactive logon: Do not display last user name is enabled, user machines will not display the user domain name or account logon name. In that case, during password change, the New Password and Confirm Password are not displayed.

GPO policy name Interactive logon: Do not display last user name
Policy path Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Local Policies\Security Options
Default Disabled
Supported on At least Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003
Registry settings MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
\Policies\System\DontDisplayLastUserName
Reboot required No
Vulnerability If a hacker has access to the user machine through Remote Desktop Services (RDP), they can view the name of the last user who logged on to the server and develop a curated brute force or dictionary attack targeting that user and try to log on.
