Logging on/off habits

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
So do you log-in to TCS, then just stay on-line all day, popping onto forums as you get time..........or do you just log in & out

I stay on. I don't think I ever log out. I am the only user on my computer so it doens't matter!
post #3 of 28
I log in and out all the time because I never know who is watching me at work!
post #4 of 28
I check "remember me" so I don't have to go through the hassle of logging in and out.

I'm lazy.

The only time I ever have to log back in is every like 30 days when the computer deletes the temporary internet files and it automatically logs me out. Other than that, I am always online.

I never log out- I just click on "remember me" so I don't have to. I just close the screen out when I'm ready to leave.

I have dial up internet service at home so I go on and off the computer 2-3 times/day as not to tie up my phone line.

I also have "remember me" checked, so that I don't ever have to log in and out!

I have cookies on and the remember me option checked.
I pop in several times throughout the day and evening.

I have "Remember Me" checked also. My computer is usually only on in the evening, and I leave the TCS "tab" open on my browser, and switch back and forth.

I never log out, it says that I am here all the time.

We have our internet through our phone lines, so it never ties up my phone.

I never log out. I am too lazy to log in all the time.

I also have "remember me" checked. I close the window when I'm not looking around or I multi-task with TCS open...

I always log out and log back in. Just to keep the security habits going incase of a hack or someone gets onto my computer.

what really kept me doing this was when B and I first started dating. There was crazy girl that he went out with on ONE date a couple of weeks prior to us hooking up and she kept calling him and stuff. He use to leave his excite email and account logged in all the time. Turns out he left it logged on at her house by accident. She "helped" herself to his emails and was pretending to be him when she emailed me.

since then, I don't keep myself logged on ANYWHERE!

I never log in or out. I use the remember me button and some times I just leave it up and jump from here to work and back again.

I'm always logged in. I most times as i pass by the comp i stop and take a look. I'm on dial up so no one can ever ring me unless they ring my mobile phone. It takes a while for the photos to load so i open a pics thread then go and do something else and come back when i'm finished and look at the pics.
I'm addicted to the sight. My BF doesnt understand.

same here - sometimes I leave it up all the time in a tab and refresh when I come back to the computer, others I close the browser

I have remember me checked cuz I have a million passwords to remember. I just click out of the site when I am done and come back a million times during the day. I have the site in my favorites.

I work on different computers all day long. I got into the habit of always logging off of everything. It is a good policy if you are on different computers. An uproar happened at my work many years ago with people not logging off of things. People got in trouble with someone snooping around and looking at stuff. I didn't get in trouble because I'm a good boy.

I usually stay on but on my computer. But when I use Nina's laptop I log out.

I never log out, but I never thought of hackers either.
I have a really dumb question. I'm pretty stupid when it comes to computers.
I always shut my computer down when I'm done or it shuts itself off within a few minutes of the screen saver coming on.(something I need to have checked out)
Anyway, the dumb question is.....if I shut the computer off am I logged out and not vulnerable to hackers, or do I have to log off. This site is on my favorites and I just click on there when I turn my computer on and want to come here.
I know it sounds like a silly question but I just don't know and you are all so nice that I thought I could ask without feeling like a dummy for not knowing!
Thanks! I could use some knowledge from those that know lots more than me.
