Netwrix Password Manager uses Integrated Windows authentication. By default for Local Intranet zone there is a setting to logon automatically using current credentials.

There are two options to force prompting for credentials:

1. Move Helpdesk portal to the Internet zone.
To do it, go to Control panel – Internet options – Security tab. Select Local Internet zone, click Sites and remove the Helpdesk portal URL. Click Ok and then disable Automatic detection of local intrnate sites.

To do it, go to Control panel – Internet options – Security tab. Select Local Intranet zone, click Custom level, in subwindows scroll to the very bottom and under User Authentication – Logon select Prompt for user name and password.
