Log in issue

Best Answer adamcs, 05 January 2014 - 11:14 AM

It expires 7 days after your last visit, so you'd have to visit once a week to stay logged in.

 

"It is advised that a member's log in key (used in cookies for persistent log in) expires weekly if not used. This increases the security of your board by exposing log in data for a week limiting the time frame a hacker would have to use the key if stolen."

I have my login set to remember my password. I don't delete my cookies, yet, if I don't come here every couple of days I am not logged in. If that makes sense.

 

Basically:

 

I say 'Remember my password, log me in as anon'

Don't come to GTAF for a week

Have to log in to account

The forum keeps a session for you, it does expire after some time.

I'm guessing this is a new feature that came with 2.0, right? Cause I remember never getting signed out before, even after a year of not using a particular PC.

Yes, might sound like a pain in the ass, but the less it lasts the better.

 

Although I not sure how it would stress the server, so that's maybe why it's actually longer over here, but only adam or tank know for sure.

Ah, thanks for that. Is there a way for the staff to lengthen the timeframe?
