    Running an SQ-7 on 1.5.1. I’ve got a password set on the Admin user account, and have a Guest user account that loads a scene with locked down permissions.

    If I’m logged in as Admin and then power off the board, the next time the board is powered on if you pick the Guest user but select “No” to loading the scene, it won’t show you logged in as any user but you’ll have full admin access to the board.

    Is this a bug, or is there some option I’m missing to prevent this from happening?

    your description is very misleading…
    what happens at the login screen?
    Did you configure the users as you need them?

    The console always attempts to power ON with the same user as was current when powered OFF. If your GUEST account has no password, then switch user to GUEST before powering OFF, and you won’t be prompted for a password on the next power ON.

    The pop-up you mention says “User Scene, User scene will be recalled. Continue Login? Yes/No”
    So with the Yes/No, you are choosing whether to continue logging in as your guest user (rather than only choosing whether to recall the scene).

    As @scott points out, this means by selecting ‘No’ the SQ will go back to trying to log in as the previous user.
    You can see what’s happened immediately after the pop-up by checking ‘Current User:’.
