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.
