Give IPs more trust if they already logged-in previously to the same account #492

If an user has already logged-in previously to an account it may be sensible to give them a little bit more trust. We should also clear the throttling limit for that account then in case they want to relogin later or so.

Needs some more discussion and thoughts…

Hmmm. I'm not convinced as some IPs are recycled while others are spoofed. There is also the problem of a device which becomes infected with malware.

I would do it the other way round, if it is an unusual location you must use second factor authentication.

Maybe use maxmind geodb or just the class A network the user logged in
with. Once a new country or class A is spotted (which the user has never
logged in from before) lower the trust.
