How to disable auto mounting on Linux Mint Cinnamon?

I prefer Linux Mint (I am using Cinnamon) not automatically mounting a portable storage such as USB disk or iPhone for me and I would like do the mounting manually if I need it.

The default behavior of Linux Mint is to automatically mount the disks. How to disable this?

The auto mounting on Linux Mint is done by nemo–the Cinnamon File Manager.

You can configure the behavior in nemo: “Edit” –> “Preference” and set the behavior as in the following screenshot as you need.
