    Question Forum Question:

    I have noticed in the last week that even if I sign off of the forum, I will sometimes return at another time or another day to find that I am logged in. Has anyone else experienced this behavior? I do not ask for my passwords to be rememberd by the computer just as a matter of course. This seems to travel from my computer at home to the one I'm on at work as well.

    Is this something that I should wory about in terms of any security issues?

    Thanks.

    Probably has to do with cookies... sometimes I log out, and then refresh the page and I am magically logged in again... Shouldn't be a security problem unless others that you don't trust use the same computers...

    Thanks for the reply. I am not aware thaty I'm on a computer regularly that is also used by others I would have concerns about. Glad to know it happens to others.

    When you log out, you may get the message that an error has occurred, click here to log out. Do so, and all cookies are cleared. Other solution is to set your browser to automatically clear cookies on exit.
