Bias FX2 always asks me to login

I always thought that I just need to login to Bias FX2 once.
However, I keep getting asked to log in every time.
It's very annoying when I have to use it as an AU/VST and it keeps asking me to log in for EACH instance. It's ridiculous.
Is there a way to solve this?

Thanks for the info. I'm a new user (Bias FX2 Elite Tier) and this is indeed an annoying issue. I hope they will fix this. I generally don't like software that is online and only connect my machines when required, so the login window always takes away a little fun when opening the app. Nevertheless a really great guitar sound suite!

There are free programs like McAfee TrueKey which purport to save your passwords, encrypt them, then log you into sites/programs automatically when they recognise the login (or something to this effect).
I haven't ever used them and cannot vouch for their efficacy, but something like this may be worth trying if the login is driving you to the depths of despair.
There are also Open Source 'Password Managers' like BitWarden, which could be worth trying. I'm going to give BitWarden a try with ToneCloud and report back here.
Edit - BitWarden does not support autofill of Logins for windows desktop software. :(

I was considering a recent offer for upgrade to Bias Fx 2 Pro, so went to play a little with the Standard version first. This reminded me that I had a problem with this nonsense of having to authenticate myself every time I use the plugin.
I now remember why I don't often use Bias FX as a plugin: it is painfully slow to start up and then it wants me to put my music computer online and log in before it will work.
I will NOT be upgrading. They need to fix this first.
I have a workaround: it is called Amplitube. It isn't perfect, but it fires up quickly and works.
Any edge that Bias FX may have in tone (not much) is easily outweighed by the fact that they don't fix a stupid bit of code that makes working with the plugin a chore.
There are loads of other amp sims out there. Let's all go try them.

@posgrid Right there with you - went through the same debate & quickly decided PG hasn’t earned my $$. AmpliTube 5 is a much better program all around and there are tons of top-shelf plug-ins out there.

@lunaedge Yes, it is really stupid to have to log in every other time.
I would give these guys and their CEO a free hour of my consulting time to get help them right their ship before it sinks..
They seem to have started out as a very solid company and now, because of their amp lines, they seem to be too disjointed, too disconnected.
Mark my words, if they don't hire MORE people, that KNOW the business, we are all going to be using software and hardware from a company that went out of business soon.
I have had many businesses ignore me when I told them what was wrong, most are no longer in business. Common sense business practices are thrown out the window by financial agents and inept mangers with too much power.
