Authentication and Password Manager

This question has been answered by DELL-Steve O

I am trying to see if there is a way to turn off the Password Manager during install of the Authentication piece.

We are running Dell Data Protection Enterprise Edition and currently utilizing the Encryption portion of it, but we are now starting to roll out Latitude E7470's with a fingerprint Reader.  We want to allow the users to use the Finger Print Reader to log in to the system, but don't want them to use it for all of the various websites they log into.  Is there a way to turn off and/or permanently disable the Password Manager during install of the Authentication piece?

  • Hello Tim,

    You cannot disable the password manager functionality currently via an install switch however the below registry additions will prevent password manager from functioning.

    > [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\DigitalPersona\Policies\CommonSettings]

    > [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\DigitalPersona\Policies\CommonSettings\{42F9948B-B690-4325-A073-63A8BF31FF32}] "DisableApps"=dword:00000001

    >

    > [HKEY_Current_User\SOFTWARE\DigitalPersona\Policies\CommonSettings]

    > [HKEY_ Current_User \SOFTWARE\DigitalPersona\Policies\CommonSettings\{42F9948B-B690-4325-A073-63A8BF31FF32}] "DisableApps"=dword:00000001
