I was thinking insurance fraud. But then I'm not in a very trusting mood today.

Re: Don't touch ES File Explorer with a barge pole
I think the last version I used started to get all touchy-feely and ask if it could clean up some files it identified as no longer required. And had some funky UI bits and bobs that meant it was hard to get to actually use it as a File Explorer.
If I'd wanted a questionable-value "system optimizer" data slurper I'd have downloaded one. I want a file explorer to allow me to explore files.
Dozens of .gov HTTPS certs expire, webpages offline, FBI on ice, IT security slows... Yup, it's day 20 of Trump's govt shutdown

Re: Work requires regular password changes
I used to work somewhere as a non-sysadmin that required regular password resets, retained 12 previous passwords but had no minimum password age. I just used to sit there and reset my password 13 times to get back to the one (very complex) one I had committed to memory.
I say this to perhaps reinforce that having a policy is one thing, having an effective policy is harder. Sounds like Citrix is at least trying to do good things.
Re: Another design approach:
I made one of those in my first car (a Citroen GSA estate if you want to know). I screwed the lid of an ice cream tub to the side of the centre console in the passenger footwell, snapped the tub into place, made a rubbish sized hole in the top et voila, my own bin. Tended to be full of fag packets and crisp bags.

What can I say about this 5G elixir? Try it on steaks! Cleans nylons! It's made for the home! The office! On fruits!
Should a robo-car run over a kid or a grandad? Healthy or ill person? Let's get millions of folks to decide for AI...
I can't help thinking that the idea of a car that's programmed to possibly sacrifice its driver in certain circumstances could be abused. Say James Bond is driving along and a group of 10 henchman deliberately jump out in front of him so that James ends up wrapped around a lamp post.
I am glad brighter brains than mine are working on this.
