Disabling shared login

If you have been using shared login, your administrator might decide to disable it for you. Or your administrator might allow you to disable shared login yourself.

About this task

To disable shared login yourself, click File > Security > User Security and clear the Login to Notes using your operating system login check box. If this option is grayed, you cannot disable or enable shared login yourself.

If your administrator has disabled shared login, you see a message stating so and then you are prompted for your Microsoft® Windows® password. Next, the Set Password window opens, prompting you to enter a new Notes® password, which you will then need to provide when you start Notes. You can cancel out of the Set Password window, but if your administrator requires you to disable shared login, Notes shuts down and you are asked to disable shared login again the next time you start Notes.
