When trying to log in, I'm prompted for a two-step verification code. However, no code has been sent to my designated e-mail account as of late - thus, preventing me from logging in on my secondary account.
I have tried disabling this feature with my main admin account under "General...
I think having to re-authenticate every 30 days is a bit of a hassle, personally. Large services like Google and Facebook don't make me re-authenticate every 30 days, they permanently remember the browser unless cookies are cleared.
Having the option to adjust the 30 day period to be longer...
Today, my 30 days finally expired on my login using my 2FA key. When I was initially setting up my 2FA authentication, my phone could not scan the QR code on my screen to add it (I am using Authy over Google Authenticator). This was strange, seeing as it worked here on the XF Forums, but...
It would be nice if the option 'trust this device for 30 days' would differentiate between the forum login and the ACP login.

I often work on several local installation at home, and this verification was returned each login :mad: (even with the permission to NO)

he can somehow bypass the login 2FA, because the user has selected 'remember this...
Mike said in his post about the new 2FA in XenForo:
Are there any more details about this? Or will there be?
I mean is there any documentation or example implementation of this? Or is planned that there will be one released?
Are there any special APIs at all?
With this simple add-on you can visually remove Two-Step Verification feature.
Note: Two-Step Verification is a security improvement from XenForo, but if you don't want it on your forum, you can remove it by installing this add-on. Before you decide, maybe read those threads:
