Allow storage of user passwords


Allows Microsoft Lync to store user passwords.

If you enable this policy setting, Microsoft Lync can store a password on request from the user.

If you disable this policy setting, Microsoft Lync cannot store a password.

If you do not configure this policy setting and the user logs on to a domain, Microsoft Lync does not store the password. If you do not configure this policy setting and the user does not log on to a domain (for example, if the user logs on to a workgroup), Microsoft Lync can store the password.

Note: You can configure this policy setting under both Computer Configuration and User Configuration, but the policy setting under Computer Configuration takes precedence.

Supported on: At least Windows 7
