Being logged out automatically

Post by Jobbo » Thu May 03, 2018 6:49 am

I was logged out when I tried to view the forum this morning; I wondered why all the new post icons had gone. Is there a time-limited cookie?

Mine does it every now and again, but it cleverly uses FaceID to log back on so I don’t mind.

I was logged out again this morning. I hadn’t even closed the tab. 3 days seems a bit short.

I can't find anything which would cause this - the cookie time is disabled, so (in theory) it should never log you out over time. That being said, a quick Google suggests it's not an uncommon issue with this software....

The only thing is that PhpBB binds your login to your IP, so if your IP changes (which I suspect it does frequently on 4G?) then it will prompt for another login.

That’ll be it - it’s my phone on which I’m always logged out. Thanks for the explanation at least 😃
