Stop allowing locked Windows desktop app to flash credentials

I’ve found that when I return to my PC and restore the Bitwarden desktop app’s window, using its tray icon after the app has locked, the contents of the unlocked window flash on the screen before the password entry screen replaces it. It’s quite clear how this could compromise security.

I see this happen in the Safari browser extension on MacOS as well.

Seems to be a snapshot of the last state of the window that gets displayed for a moment.
