KNIME Log In Local Client

Hi all, I have a local KNIME Client installed on my machine, without a server. However, I still get a pop-up window that wants me to log in with my company user and password (?!). This made me especially worrisome since a couple of weeks back I had a security breach whereas an unknown IP tried to log in to my company user account… What exactly would you recommend as safety precautions/checks to a company using KNIME for the first time ?

Thanks in advance

Hello Marko,
KNIME should not just prompt you for that information. Can you send a screenshot of that window that pops up? Did you run a full virus scan on your machine?
Kind regards
