The most annoying part about the WordPress login screen is when you forget to check the “Remember me” checkbox and hit login. We do it all the time. If you exit the browser, then the site will forget that you logged in because you didn’t check the Remember me checkbox. Are you tired of logging in over and over without checking the remember me field? In this article, we are going to show you how to automatically check the remember me checkbox in WordPress and extend the login cookie. This will allow you to quickly access the admin area each and every time.
First, you will need to install and activate Always Remember Me plugin. Second… well, actually there is no second step. Once activated the plugin will automatically check the remember me box whenever you login to your WordPress site. This plugin also extends the expiration from 14 days to one year. Unless you delete all your private data when closing a browser, you will remain logged in to your WordPress site. Your blog will always remember you.
In some scenarios you need to be careful about this. For example, if you are using a public computer or an untrusted internet network, then you probably want to uncheck the remember me checkbox. For most power bloggers, this approach could save a lot of precious seconds.
