Return Value

true if the membership user was successfully unlocked; otherwise, false.

Users are most commonly locked out and cannot be validated by the ValidateUser method when the MaxInvalidPasswordAttempts is reached within the PasswordAttemptWindow.

Users can also be locked out if you use the GetPassword or ResetPassword overload that accepts a password answer and the number of bad answers entered by the user reaches the value of Membership.MaxInvalidPasswordAttempts within the Membership.PasswordAttemptWindow.
