What happens if someone gains access to my computer and we are sync'd with AD credentials?

For example, say I left the company and the admin had to change my AD password to access my Windows profile. It seems like they would now have access to all my apps within Okta. Does this mean I would need to remember to change all my app passwords before this were to happen (or remove the apps from my OKTA profile, of course)? Would the "upcoming" application timeout setting help with this concern?

Harry,
 Great question, and one easily answered. In short, These passwords are only for personal applications yuou added to your Okta instance, they are not managed by your company but you had used Okta to store these credentials for your personal applications. At this time the best hygene here is to access the applications you had used Okta for, and of course change your password. A session timeout would only help with any existing sessions you have open. 
I hope that halps!
