How to whitelist an IP address

For security reasons, Salesforce requires each computer, tablet or other device to be identified and authenticated before it can access a specific Salesforce instance. To do this they offer two options: (1) use a verification code that has been emailed to the user; (2) whitelist an IP address or range, which will eliminate the need to use a verification code.

The whitelist option is not a workaround, it's a secure method to basically say, "hey Salesforce, any device that's trying to access my data from this IP address is trusted, so let them in."
