Registering your computer for faster logins
You can speed up the login process by opting to register your computer. When you log in from a registered computer, you don't have to answer a security question.
Registering your home or personal computer is highly recommended for faster logins. You should not register shared or public computers.
Cookies are used to identify registered computers. If you clear your cookies, you will have to re-register your computer.
