Increase Auto-Logout Time

Is there any way to increase this? We're using paypal commercially and it even logs us out while taking the time to answer paypal claims. The timeframe is so short you constantly have to remember to click anything. It's close to impossible to complete any task on this platform without having to re-login a few times. 

 

I understand the security implications, but others have found way smarter ways to deal with this compared to PayPal. Maybe the limit can be increased for certain computers? Maybe professional users with known track-record can up the limit? Maybe you could pop-up a window telling about logout in xx seconds? Maybe you can select a timeframe right at login, which is only valid for this single session?

 

The user interface in general is (very often) unbearably slow (no...it's not our iNet in general 😉 ) and having to re-login to it all the time makes the user experience just even more annoying. Our local bank here in little Austria offers a user interface light-years ahead of what big PayPal was able to achieve as a tech-giant in 20 years. Just to have that mentioned as well. 😉

 

The Auto-Logout even **bleep** me while writing this...glad i saved it in a Text-Editor locally.

I have the same issue in the UK. I hope the PayPal makes an easy option to fix it.

I'm also in the UK and the auto-logout time is driving me crazy. I've already had to login three times this morning and its only 10am!!!!

The new log in authentication makes the short time out untenable!!!  Please fix.

How do I stop PayPal from automatically logging me out?
In the Settings menu, switch to the Security tab and click on the Auto-login option. On the pop-up, you will be able to see the devices on which PayPal Auto Login is enabled. To prevent Auto-login, click on the Turn OFF option, located next to the listed device

That's about auto-log in, not "logging out". Or are the two linked?

Not sure what browser you use, but try a "tab reloader".

I use firefoz and works well.

 

Hope i could help
