HP forums doesn't keep me logged in

HP Recommended

This forums has been having a problem keeping me logged in even I checked the box to remember me. I have my cookies on and all my other sites saves me and keeps me logged in.

Hi,

 

For security reasons, no, it won't keep you sign in permanently, it will kick you our after few hours sitting idle. In many cases IE won't keep yuor password and you have to type in ever time, Firefox and Chrome  may remember your password.

 

Regards.

Are you sure it's not suppose to keep me logged in? I clearly see a box to put a check mark so it will remember me and keep me logged in.

Hi,

 

I'm very sure for it, it ONLY keep your name (called screen name or nick name) but not your password.

 

As mentioned above Firefox and Chrome remember dot dot dot dot ... for you, I can't see why IE can't remember this. That's all.

 

Regards.

Just my .02 USD.

 

In all the years I've been a part of lithium software forums, they have never kept me "logged on" whenever I log off for an extended amount of time, then back on.

 

There exists a timer that disconnects you after inactivity.  If you exceed the timer, you are logged off.

 

Remember Me is only a convenience to re-enter your login data.
