Stupid PayPal Idea: "Stay logged in on this trusted device"

I paid for something using Paypal yesterday and this happened, so I had to go back to their site and logout.

They must be idiots if they think this is a good idea.

Agreed.

I see that on a lot of sites these days.

For awhile, that tick-box would appear on my AMZ login, already ticked.

That ticked me off, and I had to untick it.

It stopped after a half-dozen logins.

Not that it would happen but what if your device were stolen and its login hacked/guessed.

The use of a strong password mitigates that, but the boomer that I am, it's tough to trust my memory for the various key passwords that hold access to all the other passwords.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
