Cisco IPSec iOS Saved User Password Breaks VPN


After downloading the Cisco iOS device VPN configuration from the Remote Access section of the User Portal and installing the profile, I connect to VPN, I enter the user's password, and connect successfully.

If I edit the iOS VPN configuration and add the user's password instead of leaving it as "Ask Every Time," I receive an "No VPN shared secret was provided" error.

Thereafter, if I delete the user's password, returning the configuration to "Ask Every Time," I am no longer prompted for the user's password and receive the "No VPN shared secret was provided" error. 

Same result on iOS 16.3 and 15.7.1 and with all UTM users.

UTM 9.713-19

Please help!
