Orphaned account

Orphaned accounts are user accounts that have been deserted by their owners or are no longer associated with active users within the company. These accounts can be found in various applications, infrastructure, or systems used for business operations. An account is considered orphaned if there is no currently active human user responsible for its use or if it is not actively utilized.

Typically, the owners of these orphaned accounts have either forgotten their login credentials or have lost interest in using the account for various reasons. As a result, these accounts can pose security risks, as they might still have access to sensitive data or functionalities even without proper oversight or control.
