Captcha-I’ve seen some pushback on Facebook. If we had a way to make the user session not time out so quickly, this wouldn’t be such an issue. Why not allow a login session of a week duration? That way we won’t have to log in so often.

I have noticed I now can’t login to more than one session at a time. Is that restriction new? There is the new option to Restrict the number of user login sessions. Is this per user? The option is currently off, does that mean only one? If I change it to 2, will that allow two sessions per user?

Thank you for the other improvements!

In regards to captcha, we are still reviewing this internally on what improvements can be made. I like your idea of increasing login session time and we will discuss this option as well.

The restrict number of user logins is in reference to how many total logins are allowed to an account, not a specific user. We have since removed the single login per user restriction and will later add this as a customization option.
