Tech question: Automatic log in

Postby fluffy » Jan 25th, 2018, 8:43 am

I notice that a few sites I visit regularly are now requiring me to log in every time I visit even though I consistently select the “log me in automatically” option. I’m using an iPhone 6, could the problem be some setting on my phone?

Go into settings> safari> turn on auto-fill (if you want to automatically login).
Going forward each site after you login will have pop up asking you to save your username & password for that site. Next time you go to this site it should auto fill your username & password.

suggestion don't auto fill for banking or credit card info
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Or to be more secure use lastpass.
Common sense is like deodorant, the people who need it most never use it.

I don't have a smartphone, on my desktop & laptop I have keychain. Works very well, of course I don't add banking login or any CC info. That info is locked away in my brain, which is not hackable.

Being hacked is outside source trying gain access.

Dementia/Alzheimer's are terrible illnesses that attack from within.
