remove the need to constantly re-enter credentials

re-enter credentials for vs; re-enter credentials for cloud explorer; re-enter 2fact auth keys... again. and again. and again.

        This is a pain in the ****, and it appears to be a longstanding issue. M$ when are you going to fix this?

        In previous versions months went by before my credentials needed to be reentered but now it is every few days

        This is still an issue with the latest release of Visual Studio 2017 (15.5.6).

        I use a password manager and two factor. So having to constantly reenter the credentials is a major pain. My password is insanely complex. I want it to remember the token for a LEAST a month. Signing in every time I restart Visual Studio is extremely annoying.

        Agreed. At least give the option to use the credentials of the logged in user if a Microsoft Account is used to log in (Win 10). You already have the auth at that point.

        Agreed.. I am constantly getting denied access to VS. Stupid feature to start with since I already bought VS.. I'm registered, so why do I need to keep signing in???
