Allow User Name to be Saved in a Cookie (Host Preferences)

Deploy settings allowing client-side users to save their Windows user name in a browser cookie. As a result, users will only need to enter a password to authenticate when connecting from the same client.

Host Preference Packages can only be applied to LogMeIn Windows hosts.

Who can use this feature? The Host Preference Packages feature is available to any Account Holder of a LogMeIn Central Premier or Plus subscription and to users in a Premier or Plus account with the Configuration Management permission.

Host Preference Packages allow you to define and deploy preferences and security settings to Windows hosts in your LogMeIn account. This option is selected by default (cookies can be saved). Revoke this permission to force users to manually enter a Windows user name when connecting.
