Hello GeedA / Praveen,

Thanks for your comments. But, i don't think so, it's a browser settings issue. Because, for same application, I'm getting this pop-up while opening my pega application in DEV environment (In Edge Browser). But, I didn't get any pop-up while opening my pega application in UAT / SIT environment (In Edge Browser).  So, I'm suspecting that, some pega configuration needs to be corrected to avoid this pop-up. Kindly share , if any inputs. Thanks
