A smart phone question from a dummy

The other day, I changed a setting on my Samsung galaxy J3... for the life of me I cannot remember what this setting was but now, when I check in on the forum while at work (Probably other places too, but I haven't tried elsewhere yet) The browser WILL NOT hold muy user name and password. Used to be, I'd have to sign in at the beginning of a session... now, I have to sign in at every page, even within a given thread AND also when I click to reply.

Tiresome doesn't quite cover it.

I'm beating my head against a wall here! :bang:

    Is there no "remember me" block to check at the sign in spot?

    At home, the 'remember me' works fine. Out, not so much.

    On an iPhone there's a thing called "private browsing." It won't remember the www or cookies or password. Used mainly for watching porn.
    I'm guessing the droid has something similar.


    Wait...I can watch porn on my phone??
