Notices every time I use another computer or browser.

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

It is annoying every time I log in from a different computer or use a different browser to get a query about whether it is me or not.  Am I the only person in the universe who has more than one computer and uses more than one browser?  Is this really necessary to gurantee security?  I notice more and more people are doing this and I am getting message after message just because I decided to use a different browser or used another of my computers.

None of your "boards" have anything to do with my query.  I don't even understand most of them so I just chose one at random.
