Annoying 2-Factor Email Auth.

  • 106

It would be nice if you could make it so you don't have to go to your email every time you try to sign in, to retrieve the 2-Fac Code why not just make it so you have to enter it once and the site remembers your IP address for example or i don't know read your cookies or something anything to confirm that it's you signing in. It would be a lot better cause of right now it doesn't matter what you do if you have 2-Fac It automatically signs you out and you have to login everytime and enter the code which is annoying.

Bruh, all you had to do was select "Remember this Computer".  Although, I am having the same problem.  Its kinda weird but I think Alienware updated sometime in the past week to break this option.  I have it selected, its been selected for me since like 2016.  But now I'm getting an email every time I sign in.

^You have to re-enable it every once in awhile (10~20 days?) but it works for me.

But if you delete the cache every time you close the broser, the "remember" thing is completely unuseful.

I mean, it's 2020, there is the 2fa by google authenticator (or microsoft authenticator, or authy, or whatever it is) that works like a charm, why not use it?

It's even more secure than a simple mail

(that, for instance, not always came into our inboxes or spam)
