How do I get the computer to remember my HubPages password when I sign in? When I check off "Remember Me" my computer forgets. Either I have a defective computer or there's some kind of trick to it. (Up until now I've been typing in my email address and password each time -- but I'm getting tired of doing that.)
That happens to me quite a lot too, fortunately i leave my laptop on most of the time so it keeps it saved
I don't have an answer for you, William. Just wanted to say that I have the same problem at different places. I count on those things to remember because I can't!
Hopefully, someone from the HP team will pop in and help. Or you could email them.
I am going to try and help you with this problem, but I am unsure if I can explain it in the detail you need to do it. But, I'll try.
(a) you can look into the desktop software you are using, to find password storage. It should be in your help section.
(b) if you have your disk clean up on a scheduled task, then it could be wiping out, the cookies required to remember them.
(c) if you have a different cleaner for your machine, such as CCleaner(which I use), you can choose what is saved during the cleaning phase, and it will store them, and wipe-out everything else.
I am just trying to cover all the bases. I even could have left out other possible things. However, I do believe your passwords are embedded into your browser, so you can recall at any time, and that's a feature of it. So, it leads me to think (a) would be best.
But, that's just what I can think of right of hand. Good luck.
I appreciate your explanation, Cagsil. Unfortunately my lack of expertise on the computer makes it difficult for me to follow your advice. I might be able to work it out, but it will take me a year and a day (not your fault, mine!) I'll keep working on it. In time, I may get results. Thank you.

How long does Remember Me Sign In keeps login passwords?Today I lost half an hour or more of potentially profitable time because Remember Me did not recognize me. It asked for my password and after five failed attempts, I pretended to have amnesia. The HubTeam came to my rescue and sent me a...

Windows keeps crashing. When I'm using the Internet or Word and whenever I typed for more than a few minutes at a time it says that Windows has a problem, the programme crashes and sometimes it restarts ... not the computer, just whichever programme I'm using at the time. I've virus checked and...

For some reason, Hub Pages is not "remembering" me and is requiring me to sign in almost every time I come to the site. Moreover, the site seems to have disabled my computer's ability to remember my username and password information because even though my computer's program has been...
