We are using Microsoft identity platform and OAuth 2.0 authorization for login into our application. We want to disable the 'Back' button on this page as this is the start page and we want to restrict the user to click on 'Back' button. Any idea how we can do that? Any leads will be much appreciated.

    Hello @Shah, Zil [JJCUS NON-J&J] ,

    Thanks for posting your query on Q&A. As of now there is no option to edit or remove the "back" option from MSAL "Sign in" page. You may post an idea regarding this at our Feedback Portal which is reviewed by the product team.

    You can use the Oauth parameters login_hint and hsu, https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/develop/msal-js-sso#with-user-hint

    • The login_hint=your_username@your_domain.com parameter pre-populates the username and directly take you to the enter password screen.
    • The hsu=1 parameter removes the "Sign in with another account" link from the enter password screen. That way users won't get an option to revert back to the sign-in page and select sign-in options.

    Thanks,
    Akshay Kaushik
