why does my computer never remember me?

    Almost every time I sign into hubpages, I check the box that says Remember Me, but it never does. Anyone have any idea why?

      You have a forgettable face?

      Remembrance is a function of cookies. When you check the box, HubPages asks your browser to leave the cookie on your computer. Your browser serves the cookie back to HubPages when you return to the site. If the cookie is erased your browser has no memory.

      Check the time on your computer. What time does your computer think it is? The cookie may be so far out of date that HubPages refuses to honor it. A long shot, but easy enough to check.

    What's your browser?

    Does it have any particular setting that clears your browsing history/cache(or both) that is set ON?

    You may need to check it first.

    I don't know Jacob, but mine does the same thing. I'vetried checking the box before I sign, as I sign in and after I sign in and none of it has worked.  Other passwords are remembered elsewhere.  Who knows, I just quit worrying about it smile

    If you clean up your entire browser history, it will erase your username and password on everything else too.

    You might also have an anti-spyware program that automatically deletes your cookies everyday at a set time. This used to happen to me and I got very annoyed until I figured it out.

    If you have a program like this, I'd check with the documentation that came with it and look under settings to see if you can turn the feature off. (You definitely should be able to turn it off!)

      Good point. Some anti-spyware programs treat tracking cookies like spyware programs. A tracking cookie represents a privacy violation but isn't worth blocking/deleting by default.
