Looking to disable OWA 2013 to not show the last logged on user username. I have applied the following setting which didn't seem to fix anything forme.

set-owavirtualdirectory "cas01\owa (Default Web Site)" -logonpagepublicprivateselectionenabled $true


This did not seem to fix the problem.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Its Https connection. It should not store last user name
With above command you have enabled public \ private selection for OWA page.
Disable your IE auto Complete history settings and check

Disable IE auto complete history settings are you meaning on client side? I was thinking the public / private was not the setting I needed.

Any further assistance would be great.
