you can now [...] add allowed IPs that should always have access to your account when the correct username, password (and 2FA where applicable) credentials are supplied
What extra level of security/control does it offer over supplying "the correct username, password (and 2FA where applicable) credentials" without any IP selection?

I can understand you may wish to block certain IP addresses even with correct credentials. And, possibly, to allow credential-free access from specific IPs if you value convenience much more than security. But credentials and IP address?
