GlobalProtect user in RDP login?

Anyone know why, after installing Globalprotect, I see an empty user account with the GlobalProtect icon as an option when trying to RDP to remote desktops?  I've noticed it on every machine after installing GP... I'm hoping it is a config option that can be turned off somewhere but I'm not sure what it is for.


On my home computers it is actually the default so every time I try to RDP somewhere, the login box appears with that account selected and some password already entered although I'm not sure what it is nor have I ever used the account to log in to anything.

Is GlobalProtect configured in SingleSignOn mode? this could trigger windows to assume this is a viable login 'tile' for remote desktop connections

Yep, pretty sure that was it.  I have a supersceding profile for special users at our campus and it had SSO enabled for some reason.  Disabled that and connected from home and the RDP user is gone.

One of the customer is looking to disable this particular option.  We need SSO to be part of the client network, however he does not want this feature on the RDP machines we take. Any thougts to it.
