Watchguard Firebox X Edge - Doesn't Require a Password????

I have a WG Firebox X Edge(8.6) and have just realized that I can HTTPS to the external port and get admin access - it doesn't ask for a password??? Yikes!

How can I enabled this?

If you have configured username/password then you must be prompted; please make sure that your browser does not have saved credentials.

In the configuration page of Edge, go to Firebox Users; click Edit for the Local User account with which you are logging in to the configuration page; click Change Identification. Type the new account name or leave field empty to keep the current name; type password and confirm password. Click Submit.

Logout and login again.

Please check and update.

Thank you.

That MUST have been it, even though I shut my browser down.
I even tried with a different PC.
After a reboot however, I couldn't get it to repeat the behaviour.

Thanks again dpk_wal!
