Hello,

Some of my users use the keychain option to store their passwords. As some of the PC's are accessible to people walking around in the showroom, I want to disable this option, so that when starting the application, the name and password are not fetched from the keychain but HAVE TO BE entered manually each time.

Does anyone have a work around?

Thank you.

There are several ways to address this. I cover most of them in my book, but here's the quick version:

1. Put a timeout on the Keychain.

2. Password protect the screen saver and have it kick in at short interval. This is done in System preferences. When someone wants to access the screen they then have to re-enter the log on credentials.

3. Auto entering a password in a file bypasses the keychain values. Generally you do NOT want to use auto-enter password. But you can have an auto enter to the lowest possible level of privileges and force a relog.
