GlobalProtect 5.1.8 couldn't save username & password

L1 Bithead

I am using globalprotect vpn to my company. I would like to know how to save username & password?

You can save it if you use older version (4.x) but you can't is you upgrade to 5.x.

Windows 10 + GlobalProtect 5.1.8


I could not find out how to save username & password after upgrading to 5.1.8.

I was not aware that you could do this with any version. the portal app config on the palo alto portal config has the option to allow user to save credentials in the agent/configs/authentication tab.



I could not do that. Only one thing I can do is change portal address, that's all.
I guess we are not talking at the same program.

Here is the program.

he same program. when you first connect to the portal, the portal config on the palo alto firewall configures the local GP app on your device and instructs the client to save or not save user credentials.  you need to contact the firewall admin.

What? It's really annoy. Is there anyway to save user credentials without contact firewall admin? Client user have right to save it , not firewall admin.

not that i am aware of and to be honest, your admins would probably see this as a security risk.
