Sign out should sign me out and not remember me if I don't explicitly ask to be remembered #976
Thank for opening this discussion.
The purpose of remember me is not to control whether or not the user is prompted for credentials the login tool. Its purpose is to prevent the user from having to login again if the emulator is closed and reopened at a later time. To implement what you describe, we would need two checkboxes, one to remember credentials in the sign in tool and another to remember the user's azure login at the emulator. The two are mutually exclusive and we currently implement only the latter.
The current state doesn't feel right because if I sign in with my work account by mistake, then I sign out with the intention of signing in with my personal account, I cannot - the emulator simply chooses to sign me in to an account that i did not ask to be remembered and I don't want to sign in to.
I got frustrated because of this and I imagined our users might feel equally frustrated. Whether it meets the bar to get it fixed or not, I'm not sure! Lets dicuss in standup :)
