Support » Plugin: Hide My Site » Cookie Expiration – Combination Setting

  • Is it possible to have the cookie expire in 1 day or when the browser closes, whichever is sooner? My client didn’t like that the login didn’t expire day to day (probably because the browser was never closed) but also didn’t want it to remain in place for a full day even if the browser was closed.

    There’s no way to do that at the moment – it sounds like a good idea though and I appreciate the feedback.

    Thank you,

    Understood, thanks for the reply. Is there a way to make the cookie expire sooner than 1 day? If someone was on the site while it expired would it ask them for the password again while they were on the site?

    I realize that the 0 option is a session cookie but the client didn’t like that the login didn’t expire when the tab was closed. I know that session cookies don’t expire until you close the whole browser, just trying to think of a good solution for the client’s concern.

    If you prefer shorter than one day, you can enter decimals. Some examples…
    For 12 hours, enter: .5
    For one hour, enter: .042
    For 30 minutes, enter: .021

    If someone was on the site while it expired, it would ask them for the password when they go to the next page.
