    For some reason, I keep getting logged out of websites. I logged into a website today and clicked the "Remember me" option and the next time I went to the website (a few minutes later), I was logged out. This is happening on all websites, including this one, almost on a daily basis. Does anybody know what could be causing this? Thanks.

    It sounds as if your cookies are not being stored properly. Are you using Safari? If so, select System Preferences from the Safari menu and navigate to the "Security" tab. Ensure that an option other that "Never" is selected for "Accept Cookies:".

    Such as this:

    Sounds like a cookie problem. Have you tried restarting your browser and/or machine and clearing cookies for the sites you're having problems with? Have you tried a different browser?

    I am using Safari and the cookies setting is on "Only from sites you navigate to". I just cleared the cache, hopefully that'll help. This hasn't happened before, though, which is what I found weird. Thanks for the help. :)
