The one major difference between logging in through the 2-factor and Captcha, versus popping it open via the "Open Management Console" shortcut from TeamViewer client: The login timeout. If I log in manually, I can come back throughout the day and my session seems to remain open for MUCH longer without finding I've been timed out. If I use the shortcut from the client, the timeout is very short and I am constantly having to go open it again from the shortcut. The timeout is annoying enough that I've gone back to the Captcha nonsense because at least that is a once-daily annoyance vs many times a day having to sign back in from being timed out. Overall, I do not like this being forced upon us without configuration. I already set up 2-Factor authentication. I already added this device as a trusted device to my account. You can certainly store a cookie in my browser noting that I checked the box to "Keep me signed in". There is already multiple ways I have asked that you remember ME on THIS browser. The Captcha on top of ALL of that is NOT welcome. The Captcha should only be presented to NON-Trusted devices, when a cookie does not yet exist, when someone has not yet checked the "Keep me signed in" box.

This way, you will not be requested to completed the Captcha dialogue." This. Brilliant. I don't know why I didn't find this myself sooner. I searched to this thread because after restarting Chrome several times today testing some chrome flag settings, then being asked to click the Captcha for the 4th time in a row, I was fed up and hoping for a fix. In my browser, I logged off in the TeamViewer console. Then I opened my TeamViewer client, clicked Connection, Open Management Console. It didn't even ask me to log in or enter my 2-factor code, just opened straight to the console. Thank you @Eduardo
