option to 'never ask again' for PIC reset

'You have not changed your PIC in a while. Would you like to now?' - I am asked this every time I want to log in, and eveytime I click no.. Just please include a tick box option for 'Do not ask again'. It interrupts the flow of the login process for every character you want to log into and nearly every player is experiencing this (aside from people who recently changed their pic).

A good analogy is it's like going to watch a stream and the first click of the play button initiates a pop up instead of playing the video. It still works after one more click, but it's very annoying.

    That goes against the basic premise of account security. You'd never see a bank website give you a "do not ask again" option on an expired password prompt.

    A PIC adds very little additional security. If they wanted to add another layer of security they would allow MFA.

    That makes no sense. You are very well capable of changing your PIC yourself by resetting it while logged into your account on the Maplestory website, the same way you reset your password. By your logic, why don't I get a message prompt on Nexon Launcher to change my password everytime as well?

    This would not be voiding the ability to change your pic, it would only allow PIC resets to happen when you opt in to do that, I shouldn't have to opt out of doing that on every log in.

    Even my bank doesn't interrupt my login flow with this request , since you made the comparison..
    It's also not expired, its just 'been awhile since I changed it'.. The PIC still works after declining this pop up, this is not analogous to an expired bank password, as you would not be able to complete a login process with an expired password.

    It's a culture difference. Koreans often use internet cafes, so the PINs are essential for their security. GMS just takes in whatever KMS pushes, regardless of culture differences (such as us now needing PINs at storage banks, very annoying).

    I wish we could disable PINs altogether after logging into a character, but they're likely not going to make an effort to deviate from KMS.

    What? how does this contradict the basic premise of account security? Can you explain?

    Can you imagine if every single time you used your debit card your bank stopped you and said - 'Oh hey wait, you've been using this pin for months, before you type it in, would you want to change it to something different THIS time? DW if not we'll ask again next time'. Would you want that? No, no you would not. Because that would be annoying AF.
