    Why do I keep getting logged off?

    I logon and then after some short amount of time, in the same day, I find I'm logged off. I see the banner saying we need to reset our password, but when I click on that link it gives me a page to find out my userid from my email. If we must reset our password, that's fine, but where is there a convenient way to do so? Can't use WFM very well this way.

    There is a check box when you login that "says keep me logged in". If I don't have that checked, then I find I must re-login. I also bypass the banner that says we need to reset our password. Just my stubbornness but if I have done it once, I do not wish to do it again.

    Thanks Doug. Whenever I logon, I always check that box. It normally keeps me logged on for days. But now, I'm getting logged off after several hours, and am forced to logon again. I too skip the banner instructions and log back on. If we need to reset our password, there should be a simple way to do it? I'm using a laptop w/Win 10, and Firefox as my browser. All software is current.

    Hey there,

    Whether you are logged in or not, this is controlled by cookies. So it could be that your browser is set up to not allow cookies from the site, or is clearing them too regularly. Check your settings, and if they are good then it could a corrupted cookie file causing it, so try cleaning out cookies and cache for your browser.

    Also be sure to check off the 'Remember Me' box next to your login info. Let us know if that works for you and/or if you need further assistance.

    Also need to check your internet options to see if your browser is set to erase history and cookies ON EXIT FROM BROWSER. Sometime, the MS updates do some wicked things to your static settings. Mike.

    If the server doesn’t see any activity from your end for a period of time (not sure what that exact time is) it’ll think you’ve left. If your cookies are deleted, you’re logged off. If you want to leave the site up and idle on your computer, click on “who’s online.” This page automatically renews every so often and keeps you “active” so the server doesn’t see you go dormant.

    Thanks for all the replies.
    The recurring auto logoff problem just started 2 days ago. Before that I would stay logged on for many days without getting kicked out. I do not have any of my browsers (Firefox, Chrome, IE) configured to auto delete cookies and/or cache on exit. I delete those when I find it necessary. For this problem, based on the suggestion that a corrupt wfm cookie might be the issue, I selectively deleted all "wfm..." cookies in Firefox. After I shutdown/restarted Firefox, it seems the auto logoff problem is fixed. Thanks!

    Don't know if this was mentioned as I didn't read it all,but I just had a similar experience. The other day I clicked on a wrong button and the page came up "Remove your browsing history" and below that there were other options to save your passwords and stuff. Well since it said it wouldn't screw up my passwords I clicked on it and cleared the history. Well it didn't do as it said and all my site info(for multipul sites) was gone. Luckily with WFM I just clicked on the boxes and it remembered what to put in them. Long story short; maybe you have set up your computer to clear your history when you shut it down......Just a guess I thought may help
