Automatic and Continuous login in web site when closed and opened a new tab, is normal ?

Posted

Hi guys,

I am having some trouble on this topic, could someone help me?

Let me explain, when i left the tab of onedrive and reopen it's already sign in. Is this usual ? There's other form to sign out ever time that you leave the page?

Of course, besides WHAT WE ALREADY KNOW ABOUT CLEAN COOKIES , HISTORY , CACHE AND PASSWORDS.

Websites keep you logged in using cookies. This is normal and is often functionally required so that you don't have to login each time you visit a different page on that specific website. Unless you explicitly log out of the service, it's completely normal that you should remain logged in, even if you have closed the tab.

Another thing to note is that some websites are run by the same company, so logging into one service may automatically log you into another. For example, logging into Outlook email may log you into OneDrive since they are both Microsoft services. Or logging into Google Drive may automatically log you into YouTube since they are both Google services.

Hopefully this answers your question.
