When in Lightbox mode and a user hits the "esc" key on a desktop browser it redirects them to the Squarespace Account Login Page

I discovered this bug after a client informed us of it.

What happens is that if a user enters the "Lightbox" of a gallery, then hits the "esc" key (like anyone would) it will redirect them to the Squarespace account login page.

This is of course very bad and undesired.

I have re created this bug across browsers even when in private mode. There is no "esc" key on mobile so it seems fine.

What is going on here and how could this be fixed?

Would it be helpful to attach a screen cast or anything else to better illustrate the problem?

Thank you,

Update: In January 2024, Squarespace fixed this issue by removing the Esc key login feature.
