When I login, the default is "Remember me" on the right hand side.
I would like this to always be unchecked, unless I want to check it from home.
That default, as the prompt suggests, is unacceptable at work for instance.
How, please?

If it's a default setting, then you would have to uncheck it manually.
If you don't want it to remember you, just log out, and delete your BC cookies, before exiting your browser.

Ouch :thumbsup: Do you know how many keystrokes that would be when you're rushing to a meeting or someplace?

Seriously, I searched through MyProfile options and there was no default set there. So do you think this is a site default? If so could it be changed?

Logout, if I remember to do so, is a viable option, thanks, I didn't think of it.

Two clicks, if your using Firefox.
Set the cookie manager (Tools / Options / Privacy / Cookies) to, Keep until: I close Forefox.
Then, when you exit the browser, the cookies will be deleted.
So, "click" to log out, then "click" to exit the browser, and no more auto-login.

Seriously, I searched through MyProfile options and there was no default set there. So do you think this is a site default?

Strange thing.
On the main BC page, http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/, where you have to log in with your Username, and Password, it's not checked as default, but if you click Log In, at the top of the page, under the tabs, it takes you to a page where it is checked as default.

If so could it be changed?

That's something you would have to ask Grinler about.

Equally easy in Opera, but it's two too many :flowers: Not really, it's ok since I can set site-specific things easily.

That'll do it. You're right. Great. So I'll just learn a new skill. I always used the one on top.

And how do we do we ask Grinler? Do you have connections? He suggests not to remember and I agree :thumbsup:

Edit:Don't you wish all the questions here ere as easy?

FWIW: When I log into the forums with Roboform, it automatically unchecks the remember me option, because the first time I signed in, I had manually unchecked it, checked the log in invisible box, & entered my username & password manually as well, & when saved to the passcard it remembers them every time. I would guess that other password managers should be able to do the same.
