This is a security issue with Internet Explorer that can cause user passwords to be stored on a users PC.
When a user types in their user name into the HR.Net User Name dialog the password is automatically populated. This is a known feature of Internet Explorer which can be disabled on a per user basis or globally using a policy on the domain controller. This issue has also been raised in Vizual as an enhancement request for the HR.Net software.
Per User Setting:
- Open Internet Explorer.
- Open Tools – Internet Options.
- Click Content tab.
- Click AutoComplete button.
- Disable the “Prompt me to save passwords” setting
If you have a domain of computer in your control, this feature of IE can be disabled via policy – refer to MSDN for full details
