Look GitLab, when I say "remember me", I don't mean "log me out after two weeks", I mean this is my fucking computer just let me stay logged in for god's sake
@Gargron they're trying to stop you from committing software crimes you insufferable hack
@Gargron I'm sorry actually that was too rude. Pretend I called you a dweeb instead.
@Gargron oh, so it's not just me it does that to!
@Gargron Look Internet, when I send "Do Not Track", I don't mean "Collect my data by other means", I mean this is my fucking data just let me stay private for god's sake
@Gargron You joking? I despise those options. Maybe I am paranoid but what if someone from some white power group stole your laptop and messed with your code and your reputation? 3.2 seconds to enter a password each time is worth it.
@sikkdays @Gargron you're not wrong in simple principle but if a user is repeatedly frustrated by a security requirement, they're more likey to make their own workaround, such as a crap password. Perhaps a provider would be better off only prompting when meta data is weird: time of day, IP range, etc., user input methods
Yes, users with certain responsibilities should know better (no intention to knock Gargron) but human nature must be understood, not fought.
@Gargron GitLab engineers in the mean time think you access GitLab "by IP on port 80" through nginx and HSTS. No joke. That was a real thing. ⚰️
@Gargron relatable 😂
Next up: Github opening a small window on the site, where a cloaked figure whispers: "The significant owl hoots at night." Just above a password entry.
