ICQ/Securing ICQ On PC


How can I prevent ICQ from automatically storing the password?

I want to keep others who have access to my computer from being able to login automatically.

Thanks for you help!

Hello Tom!

Thanks for your question!

Simply choose in the menu of ICQ to logout, and then login again, there should be a cancel button to cancel login. Then there should be 2 boxes for storing password and login.

Hope this helps!
All the best!

I can answer all questions regarding ICQ except those like: "I have lost my password, how do I get it back?" because I am not an ICQ Team member, so I cannot do anything about lost passwords.


I did an education as a Management Assistant in Informatics, I am using ICQ since ICQ2000b, but of course I know the current ICQ client the best. I also used the alpha ComPad ICQ client.
