Always getting logged out

Post by pixelgeek »

I have been having an issue lately with being constantly logged out even though I have "Remember me" checked when I log in.

Anyone else having the same issue?

Might be your browser settings or anti-virus software.
This may happen when browser history is automatically deleted when you close the browser.
I've also seen this happen after Microsoft windows 10 updates. Apparently this also automatically deletes browser history.

It'a been happening to me for many months (and doesn't happen on any other forum or website I visit and remain logged in to). It's annoying enough that I don't post as much as I might (which may be a benefit of course).

I'm on a Mac and an iOS tablet and it happens on both.

Some links on the forum go between HTTPS and HTTP though you won't necessarily notice anything different other than being logged out. What's actually happening is that the session cookie belongs to one or the other and each time you switch to the opposite your session isn't picked up.

Best to try and use https URLs as much as possible and when you get logged out check the address bar and see if that's the case.

Same has been happening to me for the past couple of weeks. Prior to this I only needed to log in every now and again (usually after Windows updates or similar occurrences).
