Can the Remember Password checkbox be removed or disabled on the logon screen

Is there a way to remove or disable the Remember Password checkbox on the logon screen?  This is against our security policies.  Thanks.

Not an option in ACT!.

 

I know the last user is in the Registry at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Act\ - I assume the password and/or checkbox would also be somewhere in the registry, but not sure where off the top of my head.

 

I think I heard Greg from http://www.designr1.com has a little toy which removes the "Remember Password" checkbox and ensures that the password field is blank every time the window shows up.  It's called SecuR1. Maybe give them a call and ask - if you do, tell Greg I said hi.

Thanks for the information.  I didn't see a key in the registry for the password or checkbox.  I'll probably wait to do anything further on this until we upgrade.

Not yet.  I was told that it wasn't necessary at this time.  I may be in the future, however.
