Not remembering me when I log in

#1

HI,

I’ve mentioned this before to the support and am finding that it is still happening so I thought I’d post it here. Using Safari 12 now, the site isn’t remembering my log in the next day although sometimes it does. I did the usual trashing of cookies in the past.

I think Safari 12 is partially at fault as there are issues with other site during the log in process like the browser logging me in as soon as it auto-completes the log in fields rather than waiting me to click on log in. Maybe that’s a feature… but if I haven’t pre-selected “remember me” I won’t have the chance to this way. Plus some other oddities.

Ideally I’d like the site to remember me forever. imdb does. I’d be happy with two weeks if there has to be a limit.

Thanks for any help. Love this site.

Cheers,

John

Hi lipwak and madisong,
How do you log into your account? Do you use a username and password specific to iNat or do you log in with a third party platform? If the latter, which one? Thanks!

I log in via an account specific to iNat, using Chrome on desktop and mobile. I also find that I’m logged out of iNat more frequently than other websites.

And I dont think it is browser specific (Chrome and occassional MS Edge user - dont hate on me, need it for testing purposes for work). I log in via my Google credentials, and I have to relogin every visit to the site, in addition, after every login I get an email warning me the site has been granted access via my credentials.

I should add that since I posted this, I haven’t had to sign in. It’s remembering me.
