Drives want to automount on login

I am having an issue with my 2 windows NTFS drives.
When I login to my EOS (KDE) install both of the NTFS partitions prompt me for a password in order to mount them. I would like to get rid of these prompts because they are annoying and I don’t want to have these two drives mounted at all.

I have tried removing everything everything about these two in /etc/fstab but that didn’t work then i also tried disabling auto-mount with gnome-disk-utility but that also didn’t do anything.


❯ cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a device; this may
# be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices that works even if
# disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system>             <mount point>  <type>  <options>  <dump>  <pass>

The issue was the “removable devices” program that kde uses it was set to mount all drives at login.
