11. Click OK

 

Note: If you don’t have permission to change this setting on your computer and the setting is fixed to Automatic logon only in Intranet zone, then as an alternative, you can add the BrightWork site to your Local Intranet zone, rather than to the Trusted sites zone.

If you are using Internet Explorer 8.0+, these steps place your site in a different security zone. Because of this, Internet Explorer may prompt that Internet Explorer needs to open a new window to display this web page. If this prompt occurs, check the box “Do not show this message again” and click OK.
