I usually stay logged in here, but my computer seems to keep kicking me off.

How can I get my computer to stay online? Same thing happening with Amazon. I figure it is something to do with cookies, but I cannot find any cookie setting in my settings.

Any advice welcome!

Are you checking the box that says remain logged in on the login screen? Dennis Donovan Sep 2018 #1
Yep. I have always done that, but for some reason it is no longer keeping me logged in. Tipperary Sep 2018 #5
Did your OS just update? That's usually why mine sometimes makes me log back in... hlthe2b Sep 2018 #2
No, I thought of that. Tipperary Sep 2018 #10

That is funny. I have a friend who swears her HULU messes up the minute I walk in the door. Tipperary Sep 2018 #9

They don't work with me. I had an Apple phone that would just turn off and stay off. I had an Ipod, years ago, and could see the songs going over but nothing took. My nephew told me to return it so he wouldn't have to visit me in prison.

I can't wear watches either nor have I ever had a working smoke detector in my house. If I leave it will work but if I come home nothing.

If it was an Amazon product I might have some info. Sorry.

At work the time clock will often freeze when I put my finger on it. We have a fingerprint scanner. Now they tell me to just send them my schedule each week. I am not the only one who has to do this.

I have met lots of people who can't wear watches or have trouble with their phones. I poke the answer/speaker buttons with a pencil and never have it on my body. Life can be so hard.

Hulu? Damn it!
