I still get that damn email notification when I log in

Recommended Posts

I only get those when I use a new device or sometimes a new network. I didn't have emails when I'd use a VPN for privacy. I'll take a look at the system settings when I get home tonight. Anybody else having this issue?

When cookies are not present, the forum counts it as a new device even if on a previously used hardware and IP address. Chrome and Firefox privacy modes ignore "always allowed cookies" settings for each new session, which causes a new device record for every new Incognito session. Unfortunately the emails are a global setting and not a user setting, so I've replaced the emails with Two Factor Authentication using Google Authenticator. This is a user opt-in setting for those wishing to have additional security. The following actions will prompt 2FA if enabled.

  •  
    The user will also need to re-enter their current password.
