Thanks for clarifying that.  Maybe save was the wrong word.  Anyway is there a way to supress that error message?  It's a real pain to see it when doing troubleshooting.

That's not how any MFA method I know of works. Saving the password is something you do to replay it to some other system, such as if you wanted to log into a directory as the user instead of with a service account.

They won't be there any time the data is reloaded from a prior result, the system just drops it on the floor when it serializes the result that contained a PasswordPrincipal.

This isn't something that you just don't notice. If you don't notice, you're not using it and you shouldn't have told it to even save the password in the first place. If you needed it, it wouldn't have been working all along.
