    Default Disable saved password for dialup networking

    (TIP: To take Windows XP registry editor- Start > Run Type there regedit.exe And press enter)

    It’s handy for users not to have to enter their passwords each time they start a dialup networking session, but it can also be a security risk to have Windows save the password, since anyone else can start a session, too. To disable the saved password function for DUN, do the following:

    1. In your registry editor, navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\RasMan\Parameters.
    2. If the entry DisableSavePassword doesn’t already exist, right-click in an empty portion of the right details pane and select New | DWORD Value.
    3. Rename the new value to DisableSavePassword.
    4. Double-click the new value (or if it already existed, just double-click it now) and enter 1 in the Value Data field to prevent Windows from saving the DUN password. If you want to enable saving of passwords later, you can do so by setting the value to 0.

    Have a nice hack.

    Its advisable to type your passwords every time you dial.
