Does the Okta IE Plugin CLSID change over time?

Does anyone know if the CLSID of the Okta IE Plugin changes when it is upgraded?

Context:
We currently disable the execution (not installation) of all IE BHO/Plugins. We have a need to allow the Okta IE Plugin to function now (i've avoided SWA apps for ~ 3 years) to allow the Okta IE Plugin to function I have to whitelist it based on the CLSID, I do not know if it is something that changes and I don't want to find out after it has changed and stops working.

Thanks for any insight.

Hello Matt,
Yes, using the CLSID is an acceptable method to whitelist the plugin. More information is located here:

We have also added some great functionality for SWA apps such as Reveal password. More info is here:
