 I would term this a feature, but since I'm always signed in at home and
 usually sign in from various other places, it could become a hassle. What
 if I'm in a location temporary and leave without the ability to go back?
 Will there be a time limit of when that token will expire so that I can
 eventually sign in at another location even if I hadn't signed out at that
 other place?
