Question about Yahoo Mail

1 Answer

Having to sign in every time I log on

I have the box checked to keep me signed in for 2 weeks. It was working fine until this past week. Now I am having to sign in every time I log on. What's the deal? I did a chat session with a tech, but what they had me do didn't fix the problem. This is very annoying and I would like to repair the problem. Please help.

IF this is in regards to browser based email, you may have a browser setting that is clearing that cache and cookies after each session. It is a persistent cookie that keeps the client logged on. What browser are you using?

    • What does "Keep me signed in" mean? If you check the "Keep me signed in" box, you can stay signed in to Yahoo! on this computer for up to 2 weeks or until you sign out. To protect your personal information when you access some Yahoo! services, we may ask you to enter your password again. The "Keep me signed in" checkbox applies to this computer only. If you're using a public computer, we recommend that you uncheck the checkbox. You can also modify the number of times you're asked for your password by clicking on My Account at the top of most Yahoo! pages once you sign in. If you do so, Yahoo! will ask you to verify your password more frequently, although your sign-in screen will still indicate every "two weeks". (More information on modifying your sign-in settings)
    • What is this image at the top of my sign-in box? It's a sign-in seal - a feature to help you protect your Yahoo! password against fraud. (Find out more about sign-in seals.)
    • Not seeing your sign-in seal? If you set up your sign-in seal but now no longer see it, you could be on a fraudulent site. Look carefully at your browser's address bar. A genuine Yahoo! sign-in page will always display just before the next forward slash. (Read more about identifying a real Yahoo! sign-in page.)
    • Concerned about password security? Yahoo! submits your ID and password using SSL, which provides a level of security when transmitting data. (More information on password security.)
    • What if I forgot my ID or password? Look up your ID and/or password after confirming some personal information. Remember to use your full Yahoo! ID (e.g. to sign in.
    • Having problems logging in? Did you forget to include your full Yahoo! ID? If so, please remember to use your full Yahoo! ID to sign in.

    I have to keep signing in every time i use google mail.this has just started today.there is no box to check to keep me signed in for 2 weeks.

    Log out of Google / Gmail

    Within Firefox go to:

    Tools - Options - Privacy

    Click on link "remove individual cookies"

    Find the Site

    Click button "Remove Cookie"

    Logon to Google /Gmail and see if option to stay signed in appears

    I've seen evidence that this doesn't always work the first time so try clearing the cookies a second time if the first attempt fails...

    Bought a second hand computer.cannot remove the previous owners on signing in.How can i make my yahoo id the default.

    Make sure that when you sign in you check the "Keep me signed in" Box located right below where you enter your password. Then go to "Account Info" and go to "Change Sign In Settings". Make sure that you have "2 weeks" selected, as this will keep you signed in for 2 weeks at a time without being automatically signed out.

    Signing in ....sign in to yahoo mail.....i check the "sign in for 2 weeks box"...but it dosent work now.........have to sign in all the time.... whats gone wrong... ..very frustrating !!!!!!!! peter

    Even if you configured the program to keep you signed in, whenever your internet connection fails, you'll need to sign in again or every time you turn on your computer. If you keep you computer on for 2 weeks without any connection failure, then definitely, it'll work for you, but I am afraid that any internet connection will continuously keep connected without any interruption. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.
