I have just noticed a jira security issue with my setup which I would like to fix it. Here is the issue details.

1. I have logged into my JIRA application using my credentials

2. I have closed the browser

3. Take a new browser

4. Navigate to JIRA URL

5. It logs in to the JIRA application without username and password

I need to tweak some setting in JIRA so that it prompts for login and password when new browser is opened. Please advise. Thanks

Multiple reasons I can think of. If you are on Mac closing the last window doesn't mean that the chrome process has died. Are you using crowd and SSO is enabled? Did you clear the browser cache and tried? Or try using an incognito window and see the behavior. Are you using any password manager like last pass which is auto submitting the login form?

Can you please check whether you checked Remember my login on this computer option in the login.

If yes, then it will remember you credentials and login automatically.

I have cleared all my tokens and the behaviour remains same for all users.
