Storing passwords using browser storage is not recommended. While it may be convenient, it is not a secure way to protect your password. If someone gains access to your browser, they could potentially see your saved passwords. If using Username and Password authentication, we recommend using Cloud Storage.

Proof Key for Code Exchange (PKCE) is required and enforced for all OAuth authorizations.
