    How do you stay signed in after you shut your computer off?
    « on: September 01, 2018, 02:25:47 PM »
    I used to be able to shut my computer off and then when you turn it back on, you wouldn't have to log into each site. You'd be automatically logged in. How do you do that as I can't remember how?

    If you want to be always logged into web sites, you need to find, on each site that you visit, (usually on the log in page) an option called something like "keep me logged in". usually a check/tick box. You need to do this once, at login, for each site that you visit. If you had previously done this for a number of sites, but now they are all gone back to making you log in, then possibly you deleted all of your cookies, or maybe you have started using a different browser?

      I used to have the box "keep logged in" which I checked. I do click on that box when I log in but when I shut the computer down and go back to a website, I have to sign in. I'm still using the same browser, Google Chrome, which is what I was using before.

      You haven't set Chrome to delete cookies? Might be worth reading this

        I haven't set The Cookies to be deleted in Google Chrome, yet it still happens.

          You can sign in to your browser and you can use same history/accounts on a different computer as well. You just need to login your browser.
