Okta Authentication api /api/v1/authn password is visible as plain text

I have implemented Okta login in my application. We used the okta login widget for login. It call the API ‘/api/v1/authn’ api to login as follow

{
“username”: “{{username}}”,
“password”: “{{password}}”,
“options”: {
“multiOptionalFactorEnroll”: true,
“warnBeforePasswordExpired”: true
}
}
Here, the password I sent is visible in the Chrome Developer tool network tab. Is there any way to send it securely ?

Hi there. This is actually a working function of the browser. You should notice this happening on any site you login to - not just Okta. Rest assured that information never leaves the browser, it will leave the browser hashed and encrypted (as long as you are connected over HTTPS).
