Is it really really necessary to have to log in each time you come on site?

I also have to log in every time in able to post anything even though I have ticked “remember me”, but that’s almost certainly due to cookie / privacy settings. Not a big problem on my iPhone because it uses face recognition, but on my iPad I have to type the password every time and sometimes have to answer a captcha as well. No big deal though

My Windows laptop is a totally different story; I have to log on every time even to read any posts so I tend not to use it for this forum. Not a problem with other forums though.

If face recognition works on iPhone it should work on iPad unless you have a pre face recognition iPad.

6th Generation iPad, so quite new. I believe I'd need an expensive iPad Pro to get face recognition.

Anyway, the point of my post was to illustrate how a device's cookie / privacy settings can affect the log in. Most of the computers / tablets in my home are networked so I tend to use a high level of privacy settings when using the internet. I also clear cookies and temp files periodically. If having to log in is the result of this, then no big deal.

You don't need face recognition, fingerprint id will work perfectly and you have that on a 6th gen iPad. Just tell it to save the password and you will be prompted with a blue rectangle at the bottom of the screen when you tap inside the username box in future. Tap the blue box then put your finger on the sensor and you are in. Personally I use a third party password manager which works across all my devices and offers higher security since I couldn't possibly remember all my usernames and passwords. This uses fingerprint recognition on my iPad and PC for access to the manager (face rec on the phone).
