iChat remembers my password when I'd rather it didn't...

    Hey,

    I started using iChat on a shared Mac computer - I just add my account and then delete it again once I'm done.

    But, I've noticed that now when I fill in my Mac username, the password box completes by itself with the password. Even if I'm re-adding the account from scratch!

    Does anybody know how I stop it doing that? It means anybody using this laptop who knows my username can simply add it and the password will complete itself :eek:

    That isn't ticked. I create my account, as if from scratch, selecting .Mac Account from the dropdown, and as soon as I enter my username, the password box fills with the password.

    It should be in there... Delete it.
