Every couple of days I get a generic windows credential for an SSO_POP Device.  I'd like to know what device it is that keeps getting credentials.  I have disabled WiFi on my router and have no bluetooth connections that I can find.  I do not use any mail or messaging on the PC.  I am signed in with my microsoft account but use a normal sign-in.  Under generic windows credetials, I see my microsoft account, and a virtualapp/didlogical crentials, which make sense I guess.  But randomly I get the SSO_POP Device generic credential added.  I'm wondering if some other device is being used to access my PC.  Any scan suggestions to track down what this device is?  I read several Microsoft forum posts but they don't really help.

I am able to run Windows Update, and Microsoft Store updates without the SSO_POP Device generic windows credentials being added.  I can also access Gmail without SSO_POP Device credentials being generated.  So I still can't figure out what is triggering this credential and what it's being used for.  Some unknown device is getting credentials from Windows and with Sign On credentials, it probably can do whatever it wants.  I even tried the Weather app and that doesn't trigger it.  How do I identify this Device and is it a security risk?

The Edge Browser or any menu based on Edge is creating the credential.
