McAfee Drive Encryption Logging me out of Windows



I've been having an issue recently with a laptop with drive encryption that logs me out of Windows entirely while working and takes me back to the McAfee drive encryption password screen. Does anyone know how to stop this from happening?


This is with Windows 10

Re: McAfee Drive Encryption Logging me out of Windows


To me it sounds you use the SSO option for re-capture:


Another option that could affect the system similarly is "Harden against cold boot":


Test disabling one of those two.
