[Mac] Disable automatic login

[Mac] Disable automatic login

By Centrify Advisor III ‎11-03-2016 10:03 AM

The automatic login feature saves a user's system access credentials and bypasses the login screen, instead the system automatically logs in at startup or after entering the credentials to unlock FileVault at the EFI login screen. Disabling automatic login improves data and device security and complies with the security requirement for CIS (Center for Internet Security) benchmark and other security standards. Centrify enables the ability to manage this setting on the Mac through Active Directory Group Policies. 


Step 1. Enable: Computer Configuration > Policies > Centrify Settings > Mac OS X Settings > Security & Privacy > Disable automatic login




The policy will apply after the next group policy interval and logout.
