unknown Windows Credentials

Эдуард с 6 Reputation points

Windows Web Credentials are showing up that are unexplained, contain urls that are technically not URLs but strings of data keys or hashed pashwords associated with them

Does the account refer to any services, or can I safely delete it?

    Shouldn't be a problem to clean them up.

    Hello there,

    Windows Credential Manager basically allows you to store credentials, such as user names and passwords which you use to log on to websites. Generic credentials are defined and authenticated by applications that manage authorization and security directly instead of delegating these tasks to the operating system. For example, an application can require users to enter a user name and password provided by the application or to produce a certificate to access a website.

    Suggest you to refer to this article to know about Generic credentials on the Windows PC.

    Kinds of Credentials https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/secauthn/kinds-of-credentials

    I hope this information helps. If you have any questions please let me know and I will be glad to help you out.

    As I understand it from the explanation, I can safely delete Windows Web Credentials, but in the Windows Credential, I also observe unknown accounts. For example, incomprehensible SSO_POP... or DriveFS... as well as several "TERMSRV..." windows credentials. If you look at the IP address, it displays some unknown to me companies, such as TELENOR A/S ; Internet tehnology ltd. Professional Internet Services (JSC RTCOMM.ru)...
