Lastpass 2FA asks way to many times to reauthenticate.

I use lastpass on several computers and I even use it in multiple Chrome user sessions on the same computer where I am logged in in chrome under different accounts.

I use Yubikey for 2FA.

I find that I have to re authenticate multiple times when I have checked remember me for 30 days. I will have sessions where I have used the computer opened up chrom and had to authenticate 2FA then I will shut off machine and when I turn it back on using the same Windows account and open up chrome under the same user account signed into chrome that it will ask again for my 2FA Authentication. I understand the need for security but this is getting overkill.

I also found out that if I dare to open chrome while offline, ( I am setting up Network equipment when not attached to a network, The 2FA Auth page will open up twice to three times as soon as I open the browser and will then every few minutes open up 1 to 3 reauthenticate pages interrupting my flow.

Right now because of 2FA it is getting to the point where the convenience of having a Password Program is negated by the constant nagging for the 2FA Re-authentication. Especially when there is a check mark to remember machine for 30 days but it cant remember it for 2 hours.

If I had to use Google Authenticator and pull my phone out as much as I do my Yubikey i would of launched Lasspass into the ocean by now.

Cleanup the 2fa Authentication it is boarding on maniacal on the way it asks to re-Auth so often.

Probably the same issue as in viewtopic.php?f=12&t=323665 Some people say that a newer version of LastPass fixes this. I have not verified that.
