Auto log on with i-phone 6?

Postby Tortoise » Fri 06 May, 2022 7:17 pm

Is there a way to do this?
Edit (senior moment - it's been a while since I logged in on my phone): Even though I tick the 'log me on automatically each visit' button, it never does. Maybe it's something in my settings that prevents it. Thanks for any ideas.

Thanks, GBW. Do you know where can I check that? Not in privacy settings as far as I can see.

Try Settings->Safari->Enable First Party Cookies

There's an explanation of cookies for i-phone here...

I'm not a tech expert but it is the first place I'd look as cookies store basic info like login for sites you visit.

You' may need to close and restart your browser for changes to take effect.

Hope that helps.

Ah, that makes sense.
I found it, and hadn't blocked all cookies, but had prevented cross-site tracking.
I have blocked pop-ups. Could that be the problem?

You might find Tapatalk works better on the phone than the website
