Another good reason NOT to have security tokens:

When developing, I often have multiple phpMyAdmin windows open, to different databases.... You cannot do this with security tokens...

Though I hate the new "tree view", so I may just setup a 3.5 phpMyAdmin for my own use.. That would solve BOTH problems... Until it reaches end of life... (which is only in January)

I started to copy accounts from a server Im replacing and I have to sit here and BABYSIT all night because after the first 16 accounts transferred a token warning began popping up after every account transfer completed now if I dont sit here and babysit it wont move the accounts if I dont click to update the token!
Whoever dreamed this up needs to come up with a better idea this doesnt work well! IM ANGRY!

Please open a support ticket for any specific problems you encounter with the use of security tokens. This will allow us to attempt to reproduce the issue and open an internal case if necessary.

Thank you.

Valetia, another quick hack to make the cPanel warning go away:

Add the following code right before <div id="cpanel"> (/usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/x3/branding/stdmheader.html, line 18):

I hope at some point cPanel developers realise how stupid this is becoming, and add an i-accept-the-risks=1 config parameter.
No working for me always display me the warning.

I have this.

Code:
<body id="cpanel_body" class="yui-skin-sam">

<script>
document.getElementById('security_token_warning').style.display = 'none';
</script>

<div id="cpanel">
Any wrong with this?

We are boring seeing security token error.
Why cPanel removed the ability to disable this option?
I think there are many other ways to increase security.

Like other panels, plesk, directadmin, vbulletin, and and and...
All of them has acceptable security without any token

Many users want this to be disabled, but you insist it is required.
I think you should consider "user friendly" and convenience of the users and then start developing.
