Recently, Safari started to act differently and to bounce me out from websites such as Gmail, so I need to login after reboot or long sleep etc.

Why is this happening? How do I make Safari "remember" I'm logged in?

  • you don't have this problem @jksoegaard? not using private windows. – JBallin Mar 19 at 22:36
  • No, haven't got that problem at all. – jksoegaard Mar 19 at 22:39

This seems to be a common issue (which I also experience). I know that Safari is particular with how it handles cookies, which is a likely cause. I'm assuming this is on Apple's radar.

I have some suspicion that it's because I have website tracking completely off, but never tested it fully as I prefer to have it off.

As a temporary fix, the use of a password manager (iCloud Keychain is built into Apple devices) makes the login process faster.
