Support Request: Auto-Logon Encryption

Description

Hello, we recently made a configuration change to our SiteKiosk to auto-logon to a domain account. We are looking for information about where this password will be stored / what type of encryption / is it stored in plaintext etc? We were using a local account previously so this was not a concern until a recent config change pushed us in the direction of using a domain service account.
