If you do check the box your account will remain signed in until you actively sign out of your account, using the sign out button in your account menu. This can be convenient for people who do not use a shared device, but is not recommended for public computers.
If you're being asked to sign in each time, there are a few things that can cause this:
- Physically signing out of your account each time you leave the site
- Clearing session data either manually or automatically per browser settings
- You may be clicking on a link or bookmark that leads to the sign in page instead of going straight to http://www.catholicmatch.com *in this case you would still be signed into your account and can just choose any of the options in menu bar to go to the rest of the site
- My may be clicking on a link or bookmark that leads to the account page and are being asked to verify your password before accessing your private account information. This is a security feature to protect those who choose to stay signed into their accounts long term.
I checked the box so that, if CM emails me to tell me I got a message, or emoticon, or a view from another member, I can quickly click the link CM provides, which launches my browser right to the site. My computers have sign-on passwords, and I use a random generator to get my passwords (if you Google "Random passwords," you'll see what I mean).
It is a convenience. The moderator offers good suggestions. My personal suggestion is, never log on to CM from any device except your own - don't do it at the library, or at work computers, or coffee shop computers, etc.
God bless, Doug
They do this to monitor employees who may be goofing off, but of course, it may feel like "spying" to some. It is perfectly legal - it is, after all, their equipment.
SO, if you use your employer's computer to go internet shopping, or personal emailing, or Catholic Matching, someone may be watching. Always act as if someone is.
Solution? Carry your personal laptop to work, and link it to your cell phone, or to a plug-in phone card - if you don't know how, just ask your internet provider (ATT, Verizon, etc.). It costs a little more to do this, but don't you agree it's worth your peace of mind?
Sorry for this discouraging news, but it is a fact of life these days. Best, Doug
