    File protected sharing enabled but no password prompt is required?


    Hi there so I am trying to enable file sharing from my PC with my home network and I would prefer to have protected file sharing enabled so if you want to access the files on my computer you are prompted to login with a username and password. The issue I am having is this prompt never is presented because I have the same username and password on both PC's. Is there anyway to change it so it still has the prompt or am I requred then to have different passwords on both PC's if I don't want this to happen?

    By default windows passes the username and password your logged in with if that is correct it wont prompt so someone would have to be logged in with that username etc to access the file. changing user or password would prompt it

    Ahh ok makes sense that's what I thought. As long as other users don't have access without logging in with a username it is all good then. Thanks for the reply!
