Act 11.0.0.367 | Possible to disable 'remember password' checkbox?

[ Edited ]

Main question:

Is there a way or workaround to disable the option 'remember password' during login?

 

Login screen Act

 

 

Explanation:

We're working with ACT! by Sage Premium 2009 (11.0) Version 11.0.0.367.

Some 20 users are working with a large database with all our customer and projects information. We have some serious ideas about security, and therefore all users have passwords of a certain 'strength' when logging into the database.

Weak spot is the fact that a user is able to set an option 'Remember password', which will make this line of defense useless.

 

(Of course we also have passwords and usercreditials on the Windows logon, but we would like to have Act as safe as possible).

 

 

 

 

I did not find a normal user-setting to do so. Does anybody know a workaround?

 

(As last resort i should think about removing the checkbox in the layout itselfs? Hope not!)

 

Any help appreciated,

 

Kind regards,

 

Rene van der Velde

Thank you for responding..

 

In the registry, i see no obvious clues as to what might do the job. Can you?

 

Having a special kind of macro tool to take away the input is likely to be a weak solution, since people could delay the start of such a program.

 

Is there no way to digg into the source and 'hide' the button completely (I do not consider this to be seriously seen as 'altering' the code ;-)
