    This article is far from complete. In the real world, this would lead users to ring and complain that their iPad, iPhone, Android Device, Mac, and PC no longer work. You can’t just say you’re all setup. Also, nothing about printing codes, these are important, I’ve had directors in Italy in the middle of nowhere unable to receive a phone text, without the authentication program, unable to get in to their email. With an emergency code they could.

    It also needs to address permitting cookies, how reseting a browser or clearing cookies would reset the 30 day trust, how each browser sets a different cookie, etc. etc. etc.
