If you log into Scratch on a different computer that you haven't logged in on before, and it doesn't make you do an email confirmation thing to log in.
If there was an email confirmation thing when you log in from a new device, it would prevent hacking and stuff like that.

Ehhh just get a good password. I do not want to do an email confirmation just because some people cant use a password manager

Hmm, you would think that if someone were to enter your account on a foreign device with malicious intent in mind, they would probably, I dunno, already have your password.

Right, but if you use a password manager with secure and long password you would have no issues unless they hacked your local computer or guessed your password manager password at which point you have much bigger problems.

It would be a protection from hackers, though they're not much of a problem. Like, if another device has your password it should give you an email before being able to log in, like in GitHub. Semi-support. It would give a protection from hackers, though. Are they much of a problem?

This would be a nice option to have, yes. I would love to see TOTP too, because TOTP is much less annoying to use than email verification IMHO.

TOTP would be much better than Email Verification

Yeah but rescuing TOTP codes from the hellish depths of LastPass:tm: Authenticator:tm: is awful.

NO! At least, if its impossible to turn off. This is annoying, and i dont want it. But it might be useful to those Karens that cant use password managers.

Support. This would stop people from hacking into other's devices.

Nope not devices, just accounts. If someone has access to your Scratch account that gives them ZERO access to your computer or whatever device you use to connet to Scratch

Yeah. 99% of services grant ZERO access to your physical computer.
