Internet Explorer Keeps Asking for Username and Password

While working on SharePoint 2010 on remote machine it may happen that whenever you try to open a SharePoint site, the internet explorer will ask for Username and Password (instead of taking current logged in user’s authentication).

This issue could occur if the setting is set to prompt for the User Name and Password

Follow the below steps:

1.  Open Internet explorer, click Tools – Internet Options .

2.  Click the Security tab – Custom Level button.

3.  Under the settings look for “User Authentication Logon” check the box for “Automatic Logon only in Intranet Zone”.

4.  Click Apply. Click OK.

Now restart your Internet Explorer and check if it’s working.

Enjoy & Have fun!! 🙂
