Have a web app open with sensitive data in a browser tab.  The user closes the tab without logging off of the application.  The browser is still open with other tabs.  I can go onto another tab and select "reopen closed tabs" & my sensitive data is returned to me with the session still live.

We've tried the below suggestions, however, this is not working as needed.
