DisablePasswordCaching may not hide “Remember my credentials” in IE credential windows

You may already take a look at our previous post

Case Study – How to Enable or Disable “Remember my credentials” in IE in credential window.


According to KB229940: to disable password caching, locate and set:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\DisablePasswordCaching to 1.

I recently encounter an issue in Windows 2008 R2 IE9 and IE11. It shows above registry value doesn’t work. “Remember my credentials” still appears in IE credential windows with DisablePasswordCaching1.

After some debug trace, it shows it hits KB2893519 on OS.

"Remember my credentials" option cannot be hidden when the SspiPromptForCredentials function is called in Windows


After applying above KB, the DisablePasswordCaching does work to hide “Remember my credentials” in IE credential window in Windows 2008 R2 IE9 and IE11.
