is this a teams issue or a linux one? Any ideas how to do it?

the username (email) is remembered but the pass isn't.

no option in seahorse to save and autocomplete a pass either

    Hi DimitrisAthanasiadis-3217,

    What is the version of Microsoft Teams in Ubuntu 16?

    My version is 1.3.00.5153. Microsoft Teams can auto login without entering username and password after restarting.

    If your version is not the latest, please try to update it to the latest version.

    Hello,

    thanks for the prompt reply.

    I have the same version as you (which is the latest).

    In the synaptic package manager I also see something called teams-insiders which isn't installed - is it in your case?

    perhaps it's a linux setting for the system to remember the password? (the username is remembered)

    thanks

    hmm, it seems to auto-login now - installing the insiders must have helped...
