I have Creative Cloud and am logged into the desktop app. I have noticed recently that the more i use Cloud applications, the more new Adobe credentials I get stored to my Windows Credentials Manager. Just today, I launched Bridge and then Photoshop. After working for about an hour, I now have 44 "Adobe App" generic credentials added and 3 "Adobe User" credentials.

Why are credentials being stored?

Why so many?

Did something change with this latest version of the Cloud App (4.7.0.400)?

I am using Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 (64-bit).

I just did a "Repair" on my Creative Cloud Desktop App to correct the continuous prompt for login issue. The Credentials Manager had been clean at that time.

Thanks

Found this link that at least verifies that CC 2019 apps store user and license information in the Windows Credentials Manager:User and license information issues | CC 2019 It does not explain why there are dozens of them stored.

That's great but I have to continually remove around 100 certs per day. It's messing up my company VPN ability.  How do I get it to stop loading these? I cleared it repeatedly. If they don't have a  solution, aside from me taking a half hour to clear these certs - then I have to dump acrobat.
