This morning, I got on the computer, logged into PBS, and checked to see if there were any books I needed to mail.  I got off the computer, completely shut it down, and did chores.  I got back on  around noon, hit the url on my favorites list, and didn't have to log in.  It came up as welcoming me back.  I thought to myself that I need to log out when I finish, but forgot, got completely off the computer, shut it down, and got back on later.  Again, I did not have to log in, and was greeted by Welcome Back Pam.  

I do not routinely log out of PBS.  It's usually the last site I visit on the computer before I shut the computer down.  Has something changed that members are no longer required to log in?  I have had to log in almost every time I use PBS.  The exception to that is if I get off of PBS, then get back on before I shut the computer down, and that is not a certainty.

Can someone explain this to me?

When I login there is a box I check so it remembers my information until I clear out the cookies on the machine. I find it easier than logging in each time. It sounds like you accidently clicked on the remember me box.

There is a log out button at the top right hand corner if you want to log out each visit.

Didn't PBS used to remember you for no more than 2 weeks? I can't remember the last time I had to log in. I'm glad, though. I hate logging in. Slows me down. wink
