Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I have checked the “Stay Logged In” box when logging in. Why am I still being asked to log in again prior to the 90-day log in window?

Typically, this means that the cookies are disabled on your device or the cache needs to be cleared. Having cookies enabled helps websites to remember information from your previous visit and to also automatically log you in. Clearing the cache periodically can allow your browser to function more efficiently.

Another possible problem is that you are viewing the site in Private mode (which is called Incognito mode on the Chrome browser). If you’re viewing the site in Private or Incognito mode, you will have to log in every time you go to the site.

Also, note that you will have to log in on every browser you use. This means logging in on your phone and your computer, as well as every browser on that phone or computer.

(Note that, on your phone, Twitter and Facebook use their own browser, so you’ll have to login again in Twitter and Facebook. It’s annoying, we know. Unfortunately, there’s nothing we can do about it.)

Yes! Our app is available for download in the App Store on Apple devices and in the Google Play Store on Android devices under The Daily Memphian.
