Frequent Login Requirement

Postby Jefecinco » Fri Jan 31, 2020 10:32 am

For the past several days the site has required a new login every day or every two days. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Maybe your internet settings are deleting cookies and passwords? I noticed that I have to log back in every few weeks or even month.

Recently and due to having too many bots accessing the website, I have forced a log-off off all users as a way to kick off the bots. However, nothing like that has been done in the past week.

The real cause may be a security update to your device or to the browser you are using. I have noticed the same situation with my log-in on other websites in the past week. As a general security concern, it is probably not a good practice to leave your account in a perpetual "logged-in" state.

Thank you for the reply. I just had to login again. I'm not experiencing this problem on other sites so I suspect it's something I've done inadvertently on this site. Frankly, it's not really a problem it's just a very minor inconvenience.

I am not having that problem but the SQL Error is driving me nuts. It probably took me 4 mins to get on the site today.

I am trying to fix the problem. It's caused by promiscuous bots launching hundreds of sessions.
