A new registry key Security is introduced (for both 32- and 64-bit) in this release which would enable a user with Admin privilege to set a value named DisableSavePassword to disable the password saving feature in the DSN configuration.
It is important to mention that this is a Windows-only feature. Other platforms are unaffected.
OS type Registry Key
64-bit HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Teradata\Client\Security
32-bit HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Teradata\Client\Security

This key is a DWORD value with the name DisableSavePassword. A value of 1 prevents the password from being saved. Any other value allows passwords to be saved. If the Key or Value is missing, then the password is saved.
