Why does ID Protection show up mulitple times in the dock in MacOS, unlike any other mac app?

I'm running MacOS 12.0.1. I keep ID Protection in the dock, with a bunch of other apps. The doc also has a special section that shows the three apps you've most recently used. Why does ID Protection show up there too, three times, in addition to the "pinned" icon in the main part of the doc? No other app does this. I think it is a bug. Here's a screenshot:

    Hi @kurious

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

    Our Mac developers will look into it and rectify this issue in the new client implementation.

    As a workaround, quit all the apps so nothing is running. Then remove the icons from Dock and now open the Applications folder and just drag the ID Protection app onto the Dock and drop it there. See if this works, else we will wait for this new implementation.

    That appears to have solved it! Thank you.

    Nope - did not solve it after all. ID Protection icon is once again filling up the "most recently used" section of the dock.
