Multi factor auth (MFA) web UI prompts should not have history enabled.

All the prompts for MFA codes store previous results, which is useless and gets in the way, since there is almost no chance that you will ever re-use the same code. Please disable this, so that the UI stops making suggesting and showing previous results.


In theory, it is also a security risk, although the likely hood of that actually being exploited are likely very low.

    Obviously you can decide to never fix it, but this behavior can not be realistically switched off for a single form in the browser. Suggesting the fix for everyone is to broadly disable the functionality of their browser for the whole IBM site or all sites in general instead of labeling the field correctly in the HTML/javascript seems silly. In general this should be as easy as this: 

    <input type="text" autocomplete="off"/>

    And this basic use-case is undeniable the exact reason that the autocomplete option exists in forms.

    Marking as will not implement. This can be switched off in the browser, and there is no real vulnerability here as far as codes being reused goes. No development resources are available to address this at present.
