K, so first and foremost, let me say that i am very pleased we have auth and bank pins, and that's not what i have an issue with... account being 100% secure i am very pleased to have them.

I'm sure support will come out of the woodwork on this one, i personally have things to do irl while i play also.... and find myself re authing my bank multiple times per hour.... now i understand why this would be good for people using public computers ie school, or library etc... but i think its safe to say that MOST rs players refuse to even login their account anywhere except home.... and reauthing 4 times while i cook dinner, or take a phone call is just annoying and honestly my biggest pet peeve with rs right now.

I can only speak for myself, but i personally only use my computers in my home to play rs, and if someone breaks into my house (and mind i'd have to rs up and loaded (and authed it within last 5 mins) for it to even matter) I've got bigger issues than worrying about my bank pin/auth on a video game.. 100lb dog gonna eat someone, and ima hurt them myself and cops & all that...

issue: getting re auth every dang time i lobby for than a couple mins..

Proposed solution: GIVE US A SETTING IN ACCOUNT SETTINGS ON THE RS WEBSITE, NOT IN GAME TO ALLOW US TO DECIDE HOW MANY HOURS TO LEAVE AUTHENTICATED FOR, that has a delay just like setting up a bank pin to adjust it(3 days-1 week, w/e)

and look i understand this doesnt apply to everyone, so keep it the way it is by default and for crying out loud give us setting options. let me only auth only once every couple hours.. hell even once an hour would be a MAJOR QOL update on rs for me...

AND I REPEAT BEFORE EVERYONE SAYS MY FRIEND MIGHT HACK ME.... LEAVE IT THE WAY IT IS BY DEFAULT, BUT GIVE US THE OPTION, PLEASE... i tracked it yesterday, authed well over 20 times... stopped counting after that, but if i had to guess id say did it 10-15 more times by the end of the day...

some of us have to balance irl w/ rs.

I'm note entirely sure what you are asking for above what already exists?

Authenticator you can tikc to trust your computer for 30days.
Bank Pin there is an in game setting that means it only asks for pin once per log in, regardless of lobbying, world hopping etc.

k, i know what your saying, yes you can tick auth for 30 days, but if you use it, you use authenticator in place of bank pin. i have both set, but it only uses the authenticator. so when i click bank, after logging in, it makes me put my auth digits in right @ the banker, and if you lobby for (idk exact time, 5-10 mins) it makes you reenter auth, if you run purely off the bank pin only this doesnt apply to you at all.

what you're saying is correct, its just that you have it set to not use auth as bank pin, yours is setup differently than mine. but i want both of them incase a stranger were to ever get into my account, but i don't want to have to unlock my phone and re enter digit every time i lobby for a few mins... once an hour or so is more than enough for me.
