Two factor authentication is an awesome addition and very important for security thanks very much.

However the cost/utility ratio is quite high if a user has to do it every time they login.

It would tremendously improve the cost/benefit ratio if there were a checkbox on login to "remember this computer". This could waive the one time password requirement for that particular browser for perhaps a period of 30 days.

This will preserve 99.9% of the security value of two factor authentication and also eliminate 99% of the hassle so I suggest it is a no-brainer to implement it at some point please.

Also if anyone is looking for a great plug-in idea this would be a nice plug-in as well. :)

Thanks again for the awesome product.

Was thinking about this myself a while ago and I hope it gets more attention.

My thought was an option to make computers on the same net as screenconnect "trusted" and only require password. But even better would be to add ip/Mac adress of the trusted computer/s bypassing 2 factor and then if you are on the move and need to support from another place/computer/Internet, you just input the 2 factor security key and off you go.
