How do I remove the default administrator login for PRTG?



How do I remove the default login, i.e. the prtgadmin username and password coming up on the front login web page?

This seems to bypass any user Read Only user security which I am setting for our users.

Effectively I want this to be removed from the web page so everyone has to type in their own login including the administrator.

Thanks Roger

Dear Roger,

this can be disabled by giving the PRTG Admin a different username/password in the "PRTG Server Administration" tool.

Best Regards.
