Hi @PriyankaNag ,

 

The kind of approach @PijushRoy is talking about is a feature automatically provided by the browser, which is convenient, but not the way Power BI is stored internally.

 

Power BI internal storage of passwords and credentials is not plaintext, when logging into Power BI service, power bi will automatically request a token and store it in session storage.

 

Open power BI service or power automate, press F12 then find it at Application>>session storage.

Operations related to Power BI service, such as opening reports, creating reports, etc., are authenticated against this token, not by account password.

If they are the same, you can see the data.

For more information, you can refer to the following documents:

Azure AD for developers (v1.0) - Microsoft Entra | Microsoft Learn

Understand the OAuth 2.0 authorization code flow in Azure AD - Microsoft Entra | Microsoft Learn

 

If you have any other questions please feel free to contact me.
