Default Device Manager Requires a Password

Please Login to Remove!

I upgraded Desktop Manager to yesterday, and for the first time Device Manager is requiring a password. That means that when I dock my Torch I have to put in a password for Device Manager, again for Desktop Manager, and if I want to see the SD card from the computer, I also have to enter the password on the Torch.

I didn't have to provide a password for Device Manager prior to doing this upgrade. Anyone know if there's a way to turn off the requirement for a password from Device Manager since the device itself already provides the security of the same password?

Default Re: Device Manager Requires a Password

Since you have password on device it will always ask for password on desktop every time you connect the device to machine. I dont think you would like to disable the password from the device completely?
I use docking station only to charge from the wall outlet and I use regular micro USB cable to connect the device to laptop.
