Support » Plugin: Access Category Password » Cookies for user-saved passwords

    I am protecting over 20 categories with the same password. I would like for users to enter the password once and assume that a cookie will save that password indefinitely until they clear cache so that they don’t have to enter it on each post.

    WordPress has told me that this is the case on Password Protected posts.

    However, it seems that after a period of time, using Access Category Password, users need to re-enter the password.

    I’m hoping you can tell me if this is by design and if there is any way to ensure that once the password is entered, it will be applied until cookies are removed.

    Thank you

    Thanks for using Access Category Password.
    I use sessions to protect the categories, this is a safer way for security reasons (cookies are too easy to hack… So when youy close your browser, all session values are cleared and you have to reenter the password.
    I will think about a cookie solution as soon as I have more time 😉

    Hello.
    New version of plugin gives the opportunity to choose between sessions and cookie authentification 😉
