Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

If I log into Stack Overflow with my work computer, then log in with another device, when I come back to my Work Computer I have been logged out of Stack Overflow.

I also have noticed (in the last few months) that my login lasts only a day at most. (So I have to log in daily) Even if I have not shut down or connected with any other device.

Is this normal? I used to be able to not have to log in quite so frequently.

What browsers? You probably increased security settings, blocking cookies etc. – Shadow Wizard Dec 17 '12 at 23:22
It works for me. I'm logged in on my Windows laptop and on my iPad, and I stay logged in for days at a time. – Keith Thompson Dec 18 '12 at 0:09
Chrome keeps me logged in from all my devices. – Austin Henley Dec 18 '12 at 0:27

That is not normal - you should be able to be logged in on multiple devices and a log-in should persist for several months.

My current usr cookie is good until June of next year. I'm logged in on 2 PCs, one Mac, and two mobile devices.

what do you do with 2 PCs, one Mac, and two mobile devices... on so ? – NullPoiиteя Dec 18 '12 at 6:39
How do you tell how long the cookie should persist? – Vaccano Dec 18 '12 at 15:38
@NullPointer - Work desktop, home desktop, laptop, tablet, and mobile phone. So many internets, so little time. – KatieK Dec 18 '12 at 16:36
@Vaccano - Using the Web Dev toolbar for Firefox, I can view cookie details, including expiry date. – KatieK Dec 18 '12 at 16:37
