Disable autofill for fields in user details screen
It is apparently possible to mark fields to not allow autofill: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/40200130/how-to-disable-chrome-to-autofill-username-email-password/40200269#40200269
This is what should be done for the fields on the user management screen that cause issues. Specifically the Primary identifier and Pin fields:
These fields would seldom if ever, need to be filled with the Alma employee users saved info.
The current suggestion of just turning off autofill for the browser is not adequate:

This issue exists also for many code table screens as well as the User Management screens. I'd hate to think my password is being inserted as a default value on one of the Other Settings lists.

I strongly agree this needs to be corrected.
I also agree this should NOT have to be an enhancement request.
Nicola Carson commented
Voted! Agree it is annoying and can give a moments panic when you see a fied with someone elses details!

Agreed. Autofill is also a problem when creating COUNTER profiles in the vendor record - the username and password fields always try to autopopulate

This would be great -

Yes. Thank you. This was not a problem from our original implementation in 2016 and only started maybe in 2019. Presumably because Ex Libris is not continuing to manage effectively new versions of Chrome to maintain the field setting. For browser based software, this is essential, and should not be forced on the customer to try to find workarounds or disable browser functions.

I've added my share of votes, plus we have an active case on file. This is actually a security issue, as well as an inconvenience. We are so disappointed that Ex Libris has chosen not to address this issue yet, and it should not have to be an enhancement request.
