Should Outlook Anywhere prompt for password or not?

Seems like a simple question, but I can't seem to find a definitive answer.

We had an Exchange 2010 running on Windows Server 2008, accessed by domain computers using Office 2013. When the computer was on the LAN, users would launch Outlook with no prompt for user name or password. As it should be. When off the LAN, such as at home, etc., they could launch Outlook and it would prompt them for the password. Once the credentials were verified, Outlook Anywhere would tunnel to the Exchange server and work just as though they were on the LAN.

We just upgraded to Exchange 2013 running on Windows Server 2012. Same domain computers with Office 2013. However, initial tests from off the network show that Outlook will launch without prompting for a password. I'm assuming it's just using the domain account credentials used to log into the laptop in the first place, just as though it were on the LAN.

Is this normal? Was this a change, or was one of my instances not working as it should be?
