Remember Me

Estimated reading: 1 minute 25 views

The “Remember Me” feature in an identity server context is designed to enhance the user experience by allowing users to remain authenticated without needing to re-enter their credentials for a specified period. This feature is commonly implemented using long-lived cookies or tokens that persist across browser sessions. Here is a detailed description:

The primary purpose of the “Remember Me” feature is to provide convenience to users by maintaining their authenticated session even after they close their browser or shut down their device. This reduces the frequency of login prompts, enhancing user satisfaction and streamlining access to applications.

When a user returns to the application, the identity server checks for the presence of the persistent cookie or token. If found and valid, the user is automatically authenticated without being prompted for their credentials. This seamless experience is particularly beneficial for applications that require frequent access.

You can opt for this feature by clicking on the Remember Me icon on the login page.
