Having to verify your account/logon every 30 days is kinda annoying!
So is having your account compromised.
Five seconds every 30 days, terrible.
Yes, don't click the "remember me" box and it won't remember you for 30 days.
Just use a password manager lol.
When no other site I visit needs to do... Kinda yah!
And yet Amazon doesn't need me to...?
Really, having to spend a few seconds entering 6 numbers once a month is annoying? How the **** do you manage to survive life?
Anyone else wondering how many years of cache and cookies OP must have built up?
Doesn’t resolve the issue with the 2fa. I don’t mind occasionally having to re-enter my credentials (or even have password expiration), but 2fa that NEEDS a mobile app is annoying, I don’t always have my phone on me.
Should at least be the option for one-time codes to be emailed to my forum account email address.
You must verify your account every 30 days:
There already is
Helps keep MM safe after some recent incidents
Oh, what happened?
Some accounts were compromised, no breach at the forums, almost certainly insecure/reused passwords.
No leaving threads
So it's because of the Market? So all forums/accounts for all purposes are affected, for a feature most users don't use?
Why not limit the authentication to beng able to post on that section? (Ideally)
I suspect it's just you
Note: Every registration I make has not only a unique password, but a unique email too
Are you spartacus1972 and all his Aka's
User security is one of our greatest concerns. How would you feel if your account was compromised, someone posted on MM posing as you and ripped off another member? Luckily, we noticed before any harm was done but protecting our members from possible scams is vital otherwise the MM (which has many, many users) would completely lose the reputation it has.
We looked at this, it can't be done.
People who whinge about this should get a special title tbh.
Separate names with a comma.
