    New Microsoft Remote Desktop Client

    I have recently been testing out the new Microsoft RD Client for ios connecting to a 2012 R2 server and have to say it's pretty good (though so was iTap before they got bought out). However, once you have entered your password it permanently remembers this and there does not seem to be a way of forcing you to login everytime you use it like you can with the windows client through GP. Does anyone know of a way of doing this as to me this seems a bit of a major security flaw as staff will be auto logged on to the RDS server everytime they open the app. Also incredibly you can enter your password and unhide the password to reveal it even after it has been saved and the app has been closed. Therefore anyone with access to the device can open the app and unhide the persons password!

    Does anyone know if their is any way of locking down these features? Thanks.

    Surely it's not a security issue if you put a security pin on the iPads?

    No that's true but if the device is in any way a shared device then it's a problem. I was really hoping to be able to use this app on some of our shared iPads for the students to access our RDS session host so they could use office etc and access theor files (with the correct licencing of course!). Works pretty well for this even on an iPad mini.
