Here's is the solution to disable and stop the prompt for username and password:

  • In Internet Explorer, go to 'Tools'
  • Click on 'Internet Options'
  • Open 'Security' tab, then click on "Trusted Sites" Zone
  • Add SharePoint Site's URL to the Trusted Sites zone. (Make sure you are adding FQDN of the site. E.g. Add: http://SharePoint.Crescent.com rather "*.Crescent.com" )
  • Now, Click on 'Custom level' button
  • Scroll down to bottom and select 'Automatic logon with current username and password'
  • Click OK.

The next time you log on, select "Remember my password".

If still SharePoint repeatedly asks for Password than please try steps in below mentioned link
