    Today I've noticed that the forum is autologging me out like after 5 minutes of idle time. It hasn't done that before. Is there a setting I'm missing, or did I piss off the wrong person (again)?

    Since the changeover I frequently have to log in again, especially if I check the forum using my phone and then after a few hours check it on my iPad. It only seems to happen if I’ve switched to a different device since the last time I logged in.

    I’ll add that on the IOS app v5.4.14 this happens all the time. I haven’t timed it, but I do know that I used to remain logged in with no issues, and only rarely did I need to sign in. Fairly annoying. Adding a TouchId feature would help, at least then I’m only a thumb away from logging in.

    I had a few times I had to sign in when the forum switched over, but not since.

    Not sure I remember my password either now you mention it........

    It's a little better today, but I still have had to log in 4 times, even though I haven't switched devices, or closed out my browser tab.

    I almost never have to re-sign-in, and I read from 2 laptops and the iOS app routinely.

    I do get a notice to sign in on the iOS app when I’ve lost network in the middle of an update. I ignore it- when I’m back on network, I’m still logged in.

    What are you using when the log out happens that causes you to have to re-login?

    If you are on an app, uninstall - reinstall. If you are on a laptop, clear cookies and reboot, then log in and do check the remember me box.

    Let me know how that works for you.

    It happens to me on occasion when jumping from iPad app to iPhone app, but not with any regularity.
