Why do I have to keep logging in so often?

Any problems with the site? How can we improve KVR?

Nope, I don't think so. I've replaced the cookies and the behavior continues. If it's the cookie, then it's how the site is using them and is something the site admin must fix. Deleting the cookies just makes the user have to log in again anyway. Delete or not, I still have to log in repeatedly. "Keep me logged in" does not work.

OK, so I got enough of having to log in again. Pattern: it only happened on my Android mobile, not on regular PCs on which I use regular browsers such as Chrome. But Chrome sucks on my mobile, there I use Dolphin. So I figured it had to be the Dolphin browser causing this.

So I switched to Opera on Android: no problem since !!

What type of device, and which browser is this?

Lately my laptop seems to get thrown out every time I change IP (at least I think it's IP as it happens when directly jumping from one network to another, fast enough that session timeout can't be a problem)... and since this is a laptop that keeps moving from one network to another depending on my physical location, it happens quite a bit. It's really annoying.

edit: it seems that if I login on network A, change to network B (another IP), I have to login again, but if I then change back to network A within a short time, it still works.. which would seem to indicate that I can have two sessions open in the same browser?
If you'd like Signaldust to return, please ask Katinka Tuisku to resign.

Same annoying thing here. When it happens it's usually when i use a web-link from a KVR email.

It doesn't happen every time when i use a link like that, but when it happens it looks like i always used a email web-link right before i notice i'm logged out again. When i only make use of my Firefox bookmarks i never noticed it.

It just happened again: on one tab of my browser i'm visually still logged in (@ KVR Deals) and at another tab (opened from an email web-link: Voxengo Winter Holidays 2017-2018 Discount) i'm suddenly logged out.

Maybe it's coincidence, but when it happens this often (1-3 times a week) i more and more start to believe it is related to this annoying behaviour.

Does anyone experience the same thing?
I'm also wondering if there are people who never get logged out once they're logged in?

It would be nice if this could be fixed once and for all.

I'm experiencing the same issue here, Firefox, Windows 10. Never used to have to login this often and now it's at least a few times a week.
