Only you play on that computer; but you won't be the only one who checks that option off. Others who do so won't be the only one using their computer, and when their roommate/sister/boyfriend/neighbor/fratmate uses their account, they'll be contributing to the length of the support queue.

Further, since that data will not be in any meaningful way protected, it will be accessible to malware. Gold sellers employ programmers to create malware. The support floods when they have a big strike make the above look like small beer.
So? Thats no reason for it to not be an option. Thats the risk that is taken by everyone who uses a "remember this password" function. But its still an option, and Ive not read of there being any major problems with it in any other software.

I do security for a living, so I've read different things than you've read.

The problem with this is, it creates risk for Cryptic, not just for you; if it was just you affected, they could say "let them do what they want", but it will cost them money, and thereby affect support queue times for all customers, not just those using the option.

How about having them standing on a planet at night with their ship orbiting overhead. That might look better. I don't know if it would look good but Cryptic could try making it look like they just finished transporting. They would be finishing beam down so there would still be a little transporter effect linking them to the ship.
