LogonExpert Review: A Windows Automatic Logon Tool

Posted by Rahul Gupta
Automatic Logon is a service which enables configuration f built-in Windows' auto-logon mechanism. Rather than waiting for the user to enter their respective names and passwords it allows them to enter their credentials with auto logon and store an encrypted format in the Registry, and allows automatic sign-in of the user.

Now, most of the available logon services use one of the two approaches either they store data in system registry or in the Local Security Authority storage (LSASecret ).

There are many transformations of the two basic ideologies including variations on a solution or from customary registry changes to separate programming technologies. But there are major flaws in the two systems as data from Registry can be accessed using RegEdit and data in LSASecret can be retrieved through LSASecret passwords, and these locations are accessible through a network. Hence, making the above two solutions insecure.

LogonExpert provides a secure approach for automatic logon. Data stored is encrypted using AES 256 algorithm, which interacts with WinLogon directly to ensure complete security.
