Consider the following scenario:
In this scenario, you may be prompted for your credentials unexpectedly while you use the OWA website. This authentication prompt may occur periodically.
This issue occurs because the idle time-out setting for public computers is handled incorrectly as a session time-out.
When a public computer connects to the OWA website, you are prompted for credentials. However, the session times out after the time that is specified in the idle time-out setting. Therefore, authentication is required again while the connection remains active.
