Why Can't I stay logged into my services?

  • Question

Why do I keep getting automatically logged out of my yahoo webmail account? I am not signing out, but everytime I start up the browser, I need to log back into this service (as well as facebook, too). Annoying.

Hi keidalgrim,

When you log in to the sites, make sure to check the little box on the login page that says "Remember me". Then once you are logged in, click the Remember Account button too. That way, Flock should remember the account for you and you should still be logged in after restarting the browser.

Does that help?

I click the "remember account" button and I get logged out whenever I close my browser. I use Firefox. This has only been happening for about a week but it is frustrating.

quapaderquack,

Have you tried Chris' suggestion about checking the "remember me", "keep me sign in" (or anything similar to it) checkbox?

If those checkboxes aren't checked, the account will not be logged in after restarting a browser, whether it's Flock, Firefox, IE, Safari, or any other ones.

Maybe give it a try?
Thanks,
Sophie

Chris, I don't see a "Remember Account" button anywhere. I'm having the same issue with any site that requires a login: My.msn, igoogle, flickr, facebook, etc. I've checked all the "Remember..." checkboxes I see on all the sitesd' login pages, but I still have to log in to each one every time I restart Flock. Some of the sites still have the login data filled in (just not signed in) and the checkboxes checked, others, such as my.msn, the username, password and the "Remember..." checkboxes are all blank.

I've had the same problem since moving to Mac. I've clicked the remember account (and have removed and readded), but no go.

Never had this issue on my PC..anything else to check?
