Multifactor Authentication - Approve Device Duration

When logging in you currently have the option to approve the device for 30 days. I would like a 1 day option. Often I am on a computer and need to log in to LastPass many times a day but I currently have to use Multifactor Authentication every time. having the only option to be an excessive 30 days seems useless from a security perspective. Having a 1 days option would be much more secure but also allow for some convenience.

With several requests asking for shorter periods, and longer periods, of time to not need the MFA entered again, I suggest replacing the 'Don't ask again for 30 days' with a 'Don't ask again for [_] days' and having a field in which you can enter a number from 1 to whatever number of days you want to remain without needing a MFA check again.


Another help with the longer MFA remembering request would be to show, someplace, the number of days remaining until a MFA check after you login and a way to enter your MFA to increase that day count when it is convenient for you. As others have stated, having the MFA request appear on a well trusted device when you don't have your 2nd factor device around is an issue.

I love the idea of entering a custom time frame. 
I was mostly thinking of the computer at my desk or whatever station I am at that day. I do not want to be exposed more than the day I am working. I don’t mind a daily requirement but at times I am logging in 10-15 times a day and have to open the authenticator each time. It’s a hassle.
