how to turn off Auto-Authentication

I want to turn off the auto-authentication feature when accessing a network website, like HBO GO, from my laptop.  Supposedly this can be done from "My Account", but I can't find any mention of auto-authentication under My Account.  Any help would be appreciated

rclark_3505, if you delete cache and cookies from your web browser, those sites won't have anything to auto authenticate.

Thanks v. much!  The link you provided led directly to the page allowing auto-authenticate to be turned off.  I'm still puzzled however ... if I start at the "MyAccounts" page, which path of menu choices lead you to the "auto-authenticate" page?

Hi rclark_3505,

 

Here's the steps you would take if needed in the future:

 

MY account> users> Click on edit on "Two-Step Verification"> toggle on/off

it is under "Secret question" 

 

I hope this helps.
