Can I change my preferences for whether I have to sign in every time I open my browser (Chrome extension)?

H

On the computer I share with others, the Chrome extension logs me in automatically. On the computer only I use, I get the TD icon with blue question marks. This is opposite of what I would prefer. How do I change that?

Hello,

please go to Chrome's Options -> Under the Hood -> Content Settings and make sure only "Allow local data to be set (recommended)" is selected from the "Cookies" section at the top.


Best regards,
David

Thanks. I'm currently on the computer that only I use, and that option has been set-- so I assume that means that this makes it so I have to log in every time. Is there a way to make sure I don't have to log in?

If in the Cookies section only "Allow local data to be set (recommended)" is selected and other options like "Block third-party cookies" or "Clear cookies and other site data when I close my browser" are NOT selected, then if you don't use the Logout button, you should always be logged in automatically.

If that's not the case, please try to click "Manage exceptions" (in the Cookies section) and add todoist.com on the list (selecting "Allow"). Also, in th e"Personal Settings" tab, please make sure "Offer to save passwords" is selected (in the Passwords section).

If all using all these options doesn't help either, please tell me - are you using any plugins with your browser for password handling or security?


Best regards,
David

Hi David,

Thanks. I tried all of those, and I still had trouble. I didn't (and don't) have hours to spend figuring this out, but today I had a little time, so I came back to the issue.

I have LastPass installed, although I'm not using it. I tried to uninstall it to see if it might be interfering, but it comes back every time I re-open Chrome.

Ideas?

Holly

Hello Holly,

if you can't permanently delete (and not disable) the LastPass add-on from Chrome, please try to locate it in the Add/Remove Programs list in your system's Control Panel. It may indeed cause this issue as we still can't reproduce it in Chrome.


Best regards,
David
