Remove ‘Remember this Password’ from Microsoft® Outlook Exchange Account
How to remove the ‘Remember this Password’ option from an MicrosoftÂ Outlook Exchange account?
The ‘Remember this Password’ option is common to all sites and applications that require you to log in with a username and password. Your Outlook Exchange account also gives you the option to remember passwords. Mostly, this option comes in handy when you need to set different passwords for your corporate e-mail accounts, when it has become difficult or confusing to remember each login password. In such cases, you can avail this option. However, sometimes, this feature can prove inconvenient and threatening, since it makes your e-mail account more vulnerable to unauthorized use. Apart from this, you may also lose out on your password if Windows gets corrupted and is not able to retrieve it. Hence, if you are an Outlook Exchange account holder and want to discontinue this option, we can help by updating you with a few simple steps to do away with it.
Here is an easy way that will help you to remove the ‘Remember this Password’ option:
- Locating ‘Remember this Password’ option
