Lightroom: Remove intrusive Lightroom mobile trial dialog on startup

I own the retail standalone version of Lightroom for PC. I have no intention of using Lightroom Mobile. Regardless, on startup I get regularly harassed by Lightroom to sign in to Lightroom Mobile...only to then be able to tell it to pause sync. This is frustrating and annoying...can your software not offer an option to just indicate "nope, I don't care about Lightroom Mobile" and be done with it, making it opt-in rather than constantly having to sign in? It feels like a money grab/upsell every time I fire up Lightroom to get some actual work done.

If you sign in and stay signed in, do you continue to have the problem?

I did try that a while ago...it worked for a bit, but just today it nagged me again. But fundamentally, this is a question of principle...I bought the standalone software, it should let me get on with things without requiring me to log in anywhere for a feature I expressly don't care about.

The activation requires you be logged in, and it sounds like something's causing you to be logged out occasionally. Without being able to reproduce it, it sounds like LR blaming mobile for needing to be logged in is a bit of a red herring.

"The activation requires you be logged in"

Which activation is this? (note this is for standalone Lightroom 6, not Lightroom CC)

Even the standalone version has activation to avoid piracy. If you sign out, it'll nag you until you sign in again.
