I am currently using version 1903 of Windows 10, which has a feature that allows media playback to be controlled from the lock screen. While it would be acceptable if this feature only applied to audio that I explicitly played, I have noticed that it now also includes YouTube videos played on Chromium clones for no apparent reason.

This is concerning because I do not want others to see which videos I have opened in background tabs when I am away from my computer. Is there a way to turn off this feature?
