Why doesn’t safari stay logged in to sites any more (for me anyway)

it’s such a pain that sites I use all the time and on my Mac it logs in to most of them automatically. Actually I’m thinking about it it fails on certain sites now even in my Mac.

But for example Mac rumours and my football forum. Both of them for years my phone logged in automatically. Now every time I’ve not gone into the site for I don’t know maybe a day maybe less, I’m not logged in and I have to press login, click on the saved password, do Face ID then it logs in

Are you clearing your history? That will cause you to have to login again.

In addition to private modes, also check that "Block all cookies" is not turned on.

nope. no clearing history, no using private tabs.
not sure what it could be then. I haven't had any issues with this on 12.4. you might try clearing all your safari data in settings/safari and see if that takes care of it. If not, I'm out of ideas.

There is only one site that I go to that only allows one login at a time. If I'm logged in on my laptop, works fine. If I want to log in via my phone, logs me out of the desktop. I don't have issues with other sites.
