Embedded credentials not working in Chromium-based browsers

Google Chrome, and therefore every Chromium-based web browser, no longer support embedded credentials in URLs. As a result, credentials cannot be pushed directly into a basic authentication prompt anymore.


In Remote Desktop Manager, a typing macro can be set up to automatically input usernames and passwords:

  1. Select the entry to edit, then go to Properties - Connection - Events.

  2. In the After Open tab, set the initial wait time to 2 or 3 seconds, and enter in the typing macro box: $USERNAME${TAB}$PASSWORD$

  1. Go to Properties - Security - Security Settings, and make sure the Allow Password in Variable checkbox is checked.

Using this method, usernames and passwords should be automatically typed on session launch.
