We received a new suggestion on 20 January, and it is currently being
reviewed for response. The new suggestion can be found at:

Full text below:

Description: Add "remember this computer for 30 days" functionality to
2-factor authentication. Specifically, allow me to request/accept a
browser cookie which will allow me to log back into ARIN online on a
2-factor authenticated account with only username/password. This cookie
will become ineffective after 30 days of clicking the checkbox.

In this case, there is still 2-factor:

* Something I know = username/password
* Something I have = browser cookie

Value to Community: This will streamline the process for frequent ARIN
Online users to log back into the portal on subsequent visits, and
further encourage the adoption of 2-factor (by not being as burdensome).

Timeframe: Not specified
