    Website forgotten after closing Chrome

    Chrome version 53.0.2785.116 m

    This behaviour only applies to one website of many that I visit and revisit. THe rest remember me in the way I expect.

    1. I enter my credentials, tick the Remember me checkbox and login
    2. If I close the tab but not the browser, I can re-enter the site without logging in again.
    3. If I close the browser I don't expect to be able to bypass the login again but I do expect my details to be filled in already. They aren't - it has forgotten me completely.

    I guess that Chrome is erasing something on being closed - is there a way to prevent this ?

    Thanks

    It may be the type of cookie that web site is using. There's something called a third-party cookie and there's a setting in Chrome that tells it how to handle these. It's possible that Chrome is set to discard the cookie when it closes.

    I have set Chromes cookie settings not to do that.

    When I am logged in to the site there are 8 cookies set but when I close and re-open Chrome there are only 7 left. I suppose the 8th one is the culprit

    It's possible that it's doing something forbidden and you have to re-allow it each time you connect. Where's the Cookie Monster when he's needed to answer questions?
