Hi Guys

No one has hacked me. I pay for your services.  Please don't continually ask me for the SAME.FREAKING. user ID/PW combo everytime I log in to access my verizon.net email account.

This is what I pay you for.If you need this security info every freaking time I log in...it tells me you are totally incapable in the first place.

Cordially...someone who works in IT Security.

Cordially?  I see.

Users are required to enter security-related information when logging in because Verizon tries to maintain network security. 

Seems self-evident, but just in case ...

For a brief time I had a similar issue, I cleared all temp files, stored credentials and history. Then I created a new password and it has been fine for a few months. When you click on the 2 week option for the password in Internet Explorer or Fire Fox; does IE prompt you and ask if you wish to save it?

You can avoid a prompt for user name and password by clicking the box next to "Keep me logged in unless I sign out for 2 weeks (not recommended for public computers)" on sign in screen for MyVerizon.com.  This puts a cookie in your browser so you don't have to sign in again for two weeks, unless you sign out.

It is an industry best practice to prompt for sign in credentials each time a site that allows anything having to do with money (as your account does, not necessarily your email).  I'm actually suprised that Verizon allows a "remember me for two weeks."

Just thought I mention that the two week login doesn't work for me.  Of course i don't use WebMail and so it doesn't  bother my email.

That may be due to some settings in how your browser processes cookies.

Can't think of which.  I have had the same results when I telll it to delete cookies and when I turn off the options.
