Needing to login frequently?

#94651

Postby PeterGray » November 10th, 2017, 9:09 am

I seem to be being required to login again more frequently than I used to. I've now had to twice in one week (with "remember me" active)

Seems a little excessive? Is there any control of how often that happens?

What are you using? I ask as those using mobiles in particular have, in the past, reported similar problems.

What I have noticed is that if I change IP address, e.g. by invoking a VPN in mid-session, that TLF logs me off and I have to sign in again.

On a mobile device you will frequently change IP address, assuming that you are actually mobile, so I wonder if that is the cause here. And whether something can be "switched" in the TLF setup to fix this, as it's something I don't notice with other sites I use.

In an earlier thread on the subject, stooz pointed here ucp.php?i=ucp_profile&mode=autologin_keys which includes:

Here you can see remember login keys created on other computers you used to access this site.

I have 9 showing for November so far and 14 for October.

I'm not convinced I've seen him posting a solution to the problem but he did cancel the automatically logged-out after, was it, 90 days.

Appeal to authority? ;=)

Did they use matching participles:

-I've logginned?
-I'm loginning?

For the record, I've no strong objection to "login" as a noun, but as a verb it is abhorent!

I'm revisiting an old thread here, as the problem continues. I've been logged out twice today. Looking at the "Remember Me" login keys, under profile, I can see that my IP address has not changed today (though it has one once in January), but I have 3 different login keys, all for the same IP address for today's date.

So it doesn't appear that I'm being logged out due to my IP address changing, and yet the frequent logouts continue, but that, presumably the additional login keys result from my being forced to login again (and again!)

Very frustrating, and made worse as Chrome doesn't seem to save login details for TLF.

Anyone else got any ideas why this keeps happening?

No. I use Chrome on an Android phone, an Android tablet and Windows, and haven't been logged out on any for ages.

I use Firefox on an iMac and I too have noticed at least once during my weekly trawl of the site that I get logged out.

Are you putting a tick in the 'Remember me' box when you log in?

That fixes it for me in Edge on Windows 10.

When I forget to do that, I'm logged out after an hour of inactivity.

There has been more server overload issues recently, I think Stooz is still working on it.

However, I can confirm this is not a Chrome problem. I use Chrome and Android and I stay logged in (nearly always, there has been the odd time I've been logged out for no reason). Maybe you turned off the bit that saves the details or something?

I know it's annoying, but 'abhorent' is a bit strong?

I think "abhorent" referred to my use of English, not the technical issue :?
