Frequent logouts

Post by twist » Wed Apr 01, 2020 8:03 am

I’m getting logged out after a very short period of time. Like 30 minutes or 1 hour after I close a tab. Anyone else noticed this? Started happening maybe a month ago. It’s like sessions have been set to expire much sooner.

iOS 13.4, iPhone X. Can’t remember if it’s happening on desktop devices too (I mainly use my iPhone for the forum).

I assume you check the stay logged in box when you log in?
I use my android mobile phone and tablet all the time and I'm never logged out unless I clear my history.
I think I'm understanding your topic? :P

I've got a feeling Apple block or clear a lot of cookies now by default. This might be clearing your login cookie each time.

Yeah I always check the “remember me” thing but that usually just means “auto fill my username next time I log in”.

Rob is probably right about Apple being overly strict with cookies, although I think they only block third-party cookies which I doubt this board uses for login/sessions.

I’ll try clearing cookies through Safari dev tools and see if it sorts it.

Oddly, this issue just disappeared for me. Not sure if you changed something Rob but I’ve remained logged in overnight so thanks!
