To allow Internet Explorer to automatically retrieve credentials stored in the Windows Credential Manager, Internet Explorer requires the site to be in either its Trusted Sites or Local Intranet zone. Not adding the site to either zone will prompt the user for credentials every time they are required.

For more information on the Trusted sites and the Local Intranet zones and how to add and remove sites from these zones, visit Microsoft's Change Internet Explorer Security settings.

You may store the credential for the site in the Windows Credential Manager for automatic login. See the previous section for specific configuration advice.
