Remember Me Controls

Have "Remember Me" checked by default on logins, configure how long a login is remembered, or disable the "Remember Me" feature al

Take control of the "Remember Me" feature for WordPress by having it enabled by default, customize how long users are remember, or disable this built-in feature by default.

For those unfamiliar, "Remember Me" is a checkbox present when logging into WordPress. If checked, WordPress will remember the login session for 14 days. If unchecked, the login session will be remembered for only 2 days. Once a login session expires, WordPress will require you to log in again if you wish to continue using the admin section of the site.

This plugin provides three primary controls over the behavior of the "Remember Me" feature:

  • Automatically check "Remember Me" : Have the "Remember Me" checkbox automatically checked when the login form is loaded (it isn't checked by default).
  • Customize the duration of the "Remember Me" : Customize how long WordPress will remember a login session when "Remember Me" is checked.
  • Disable "Remember Me" : Completely disable the feature, preventing the checkbox from appearing and restricting all login sessions to one day.

If you use a different web browser, clear your cookies, use a browser on a different machine, or uninstall/reinstall your browser then you will have to log in again since WordPress will not be able to locate the cookies needed to identify you.
