Re: Getting logged out after checking from phone

At work, there's one corner of the office that doesn't get wifi, so my phone automatically switches to cell networks there. And lo and behold, every time I switch from wifi to cell data or vice versa, I have to re-log in.

Is the forum set up to check IP addresses, perhaps, and that's what's causing my very frequent logouts?

I think your IP is part of your session data. So it is possible, however I'm not 100% sure.
