How to configure Outlook NOT to remember your email password (disable automatic log on)?

The “Always prompt for user credential” option is no longer valid for Outlook after we have enhanced the security of the Exchange Server.   Actually, your credential was not stored in the system.  Instead, an access token will be generated and stored on successful authentication such that Outlook will use this to prove your identity. 

Though you can remove this token in your Windows credential manager and that can be prompted for password when you sign in to Outlook, the token will be regenerated and stored again automatically. 

Users suggest to make sure the secure access of your desktop and notebook PC because of this change, e.g. lock you screen or logout your Windows, etc.
