Multi-Factor Authenticator (MFA) -- "don't ask again for 60 days" box isn't working.
The "Don't ask again" feature for Multi-Factor Authentication should remember your selection for 60 days, as long as you don't clear your browser cookies or cache.
However, some settings might interfere with this feature, and cause it to lose your selection,
and thus prompt you for your second factor every time you sign in. Check for the following settings should this occur:
1. Private Browsing Modes
Are you using an Incognito Window (Chrome) or Private Window (Firefox)?
These modes are designed to forget what you do while you’re browsing.
Also, separate user profiles won't remember settings from other profiles.
2. Browser Privacy Settings and Unblocking Cookies
Your browser won't remember "Don't ask again" selections if your privacy settings are too strict.
