Disabling Autologon Feature

  • 1.  Disabling Autologon Feature

    Posted 02-14-2020 07:40 AM

    Dear Experts , Can you please let me know does disabling/ uninstalling the Autolog on feature on the preboot screen of Windows, decrypt the Encryption by any chance? I am updated with the information that it does not decrypt the machine’s encryption. However it will be helpful if you can provide me a knowledge Base Article from the Symantec support which states regarding the Autologon feature and does it Decrypt the drive or the encryption still remains in the computer . Thanks you . Regards, Pritam Chakraborty

    The AutoLogon function is disabled by default, and requires specific administrative tasks to enable SEE to bypass PBA.  Therefore, I I'm not aware of an article that specifically states what happens when you don't use AutoLogon, as it is not on by default.

    Perhaps the below article stating that "using the Autologon utility weakens the protection that the Drive Encryption provides", is sufficient for you to warrant disabling the feature?
